A breathtaking mountain adventure, in which a boy finds his inner strength, from the author of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning novel The Heart 

Paul is ten years old and lives with his aunt and uncle. Bruce, an old family friend, suddenly reappears after three years of silence, eager to keep a promise he made to Paul to take him on a three-day mountain trek. 

Paul longs for Bruce’s friendship and wants badly to prove himself. But he is also timid and unsure, and Bruce—who is better at doing than explaining—doesn’t make it any easier.

A dramatic event gives Paul the chance to find his inner strength, and to show himself and everyone else what he is capable of.

This uniquely illustrated coming-of-age story for teens can help create thought-provoking discussion about: 

Finding independence, resiliency, and self-confidence 

The importance of guidance and mentorship from trusted adults
