really liked it

I loved much of this book: the language, the quest, the emotion, but at times I found myself wanting to tell the narrator, "You are risking too much. You are not prepared for this journey," etc. That's not the book, of course, that's the story, the character. The book itself circles back and forth from the present of the hike to the many pasts of the young narrator, her familial past, her relationship past. I was deeply moved by that circling back, always. It's a beautifully told story. I'm glad I read it.
