This book was very engrossing. I wanted her to persevere regardless of her persoal faults and short comings. This book resonated with me because I can remember myself when I was in my 20's. I wish turning 21 made you instantly an adult, but it doesn't. Additionally, when all you have to base yourself on is a huge loss or a fractured family, it often takes time, false starts and mistakes to decide who you are and how you want to lead your life. I found my way, eventually, and without heroin or hiking. But I see plenty people out there who are hurt and never find their way out. So this author took a very ill advised hike, it may very well have saved her life. I appreciate her sharing her journey.
