ChaseR: A Novel in Emails by Michael J. Rosen

Chase Riley's parents have decided to leave urban Columbus, Ohio and move to a rural farm. Disconnected from his friends, he communicates with them by email. The story is told through his emails, which communicate a world shockingly different than the one he came from. The insects, the mice, the deer, and the hunting season all present a different reality for Chase. A reality he is learning to live with, until an accident happens.... The story was interesting but not compelling. The novelty of the email format was not enough to hold my interest. Just an o.k. read.
