Book Synopsis



Lily refuses to believe what everyone else accepts to be true: that her father has died while climbing Denali, the highest mountain in North America. Lily has grown up hiking in the Alaskan wilderness with her dad. He's an expert climber. There's no way he would let something like this happen. So instead of grieving, Lily decides to rescue him. Her plan takes her to Denali and on a journey that tests her physically and emotionally.

In this powerful debut, Hannah Moderow has written an authentic Alaskan adventure that crosses terrain both beautiful and haunting--and ultimately shows the bond of family and the wonder of wild places.



Review Quotes




"...Moderow's beautifully written imagery of the Alaskan wilderness is enough to take [readers] breath and minds away from the sidewalks and SUVs of everyday life. Lily's determination and strength as well as her touching relationship with her sister give Moderow's first book an additional layer of poignancy and emotion." -Booklist


"This is a heartwarming novel that is filled with adventure and would be a solid addition to middle grade shelves, especially where survival tales circulate well." -SLJ

"... An engrossing portrait of a girl's devotion to her father and how she makes the most of everything he taught her."
-Publishers Weekly
