"Readers are along for the ride as Charlotte gets to know the complex, surprising people surrounding her—and the true meaning of that lucky scar on her father's face. Think Carl Hiaasen’s Hoot meets Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl."

I think this book is a very motivational story because Charlotte has to push through many obstacles like living away from her dad for a long time and moving to Washington from Colorado. A text to world connection I saw in this book was when Charlotte and Rose were trying to save the endangered salmon that lived in the nearby creek. This reminds me of many people and organisations that try to save endangered species. An example of an organisation like this are the Gorilla Doctors. I think that th ...more

Great story from an independent press about a snow-boarder girl who moves and gets to know her father. An environmental issue takes center place. Well developed characters with a clear voice.

The story of 14-year-old Charlotte took me backcountry and through the twists and turns of tough decisions, loyalties, and consequences I never saw coming. My heart raced with Charlotte, with her competitive edge and daring, and when she had a change of heart, with how she coped with the unexpected. An adventure filled with nature and soaring summits, and the permission to be our true selves, I recommend it highly.
