This book hits some core part of me. The need to make a grand gesture to shake up your life. You can feel the trail grit and sweat as the author struggles on the Pacific Crest Trail and with the choices she has made in her life. She doesn't strive to make herself likeable just honest. I relate to the 24 year old backpacker, a solo woman who seeks something, I did the same thing backpacking around the world. I also relate as an middle aged woman who needs to find that brave young self who wasn't afraid to make mistakes and be honest.
