A poignant and heartwarming tale of fear, courage and the power of hope, Reasons to Go Outside follows the unlikely friendship that blossoms between a 59-year-old secluded woman and an unsettled teenager she hires as her gardener.

Pearl Winter hasn't been outside in forty-three years.

But when Connor begins a summer job as Pearl's gardener, an unexpected friendship opens the door to a fresh start for them both. If only Pearl and Connor can take the first steps ...
