Jenna is a huge activist that wants to make the world better and more eco friendly through the "Green Teen Teem" in her school. Her and her best friend Olivia make all kinds of Summer plans to help the world become more Green. However, she soon realizes that this won't be possible when her parents announce that her mom is going to get a job and live with her Grandma while her Dad is out of country with work. However, Olivia quickly comes up with a solution. Jenna is to go live with her aunt Susie in natural Canada for the Summer. Jenna quickly realizes that Cananda is a little more rustic and woodsy than she though - and the people there aren't as eco friendly as she would hope, but then she begins to make some friends, learn some secrets, and realize that theirs so much more than just trying to make the earth eco friendly through campaigns. Jenna grows a lot in so many ways during this summer, and becomes a better person because of it.

I really enjoyed "Boys, Bears, and a serious pair of Hiking Boots!" It was everything that a light summer read needs. An interesting storyline,romantic troubles,friend troubles, and learning more about yourself. I for sure would suggest this book! Makes for a nice beach read and kept me reading!
