The Art of Holding On and Letting Go

by Kristin Lenz

eBook
Competitive climber Cara Jenkins feels most at home high off the ground, clinging to a rock wall by the tips of her fingers. She has enjoyed a roaming life with her mountaineering parents, making the natural world her jungle gym and making the writings of Annie Dillard and Henry David Thoreau her textbooks. But when tragedy strikes on an Ecuadoran mountaintop, Cara's nomadic lifestyle comes to an abrupt halt. Starting over at her grandparents' home in suburban Detroit, Cara embarks on a year of discovery, uncovering unknown strengths, friendships, and first love. Cara's journey illustrates the transformative power of nature, love and loss, and discovering that home can be far from where you started.
