My son (age 12)and I have hiked 400 miles of the Appalachian trail. We enjoyed this book very much. As we read it together, we could relate to many things: bad weather, feeling dirty and achy, the wonderful people you meet, sleeping in shelters, the feelings of accomplishment, and the joy of the outdoors. If you have an interest in hiking, this book gives you a great idea of what life on the trail would be like.

I can see how some of these details would make the book slow reading for those with no interest in learning about the trail. There are definately two parts to this book; Dani's trail experience and Dani's family struggles. It is interesting to read as the author blends these two storylines together.

I do not agree with those that think Dani is a brat. I lost a family member to an illness in middle school. It is natural to feel neglected and question your role in the family. I think Dani's reactions and bouts of sassiness are realistic. The sassy comments are the author's way of letting the reader know the characters feelings. Spend days on the trail. You have plenty of time to think. Dani had a plan to get away from her life, and instead ended up having a chance to vent to the people she was mad at.

    hmmm...

    this book could have been better. the main character was sort of bratty even given the situation. however the idea was pretty good and unique so it does have potential.
