About the Author
Read an Excerpt
Ashley pushed her on the next large rock and almost knocked her over. As her cousin leaped from rock to rock, Tabitha tried to follow but wasn't as sure of herself, especially on the slippery surfaces of the boulders.
"It's not a race," she said.
Ashley spun around on one foot and said in a sing-song voice, "Is the wittle baby getting tired?"
Before Tabitha could respond, Ashley spun back and jumped for the next rock. As she did, her back foot slipped out from under her. Her body landed flat across two rocks, and her cheek whacked the stone.
Ashley lay still.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is funny, adventurous, and heartwarming. It makes you stop and think. Girls and boys alike would like this book. It's very well written and the story is well developed. I highly recommend this book!!!
Tabitha is not happy to be spending the summer with her cousins, Ashley and Cedar, and her Aunt Tess in the wilderness of British Columbia. The hiking trip is meant as a getaway to spread Uncle Bruce's ashes on a mountain he loved. The siblings seems to hate Tabitha and they are both much more adept at roughing it than she is. After a bear steals their food, the four hikers try to make it back to civilization but rough weather forces them to return to the small cabin. Aunt Tess and Ashley are seriously injured so it's up to Tabitha and Cedar to keep level heads and try to figure a way out of their predicament. This adventure story will appeal to both girls and boys, particularly those with an interest in the outdoors. The vocabulary is appropriate to those reading a bit below grade level.
