“When every piece falls into place, it’s like a dance, a delicate but powerful balancing act. The art of holding on and letting go at the same time.”

Competitive climber Cara Jenkins feels most at home high off the ground, clinging to a rock wall by her fingertips. She’s enjoyed a roaming life with her mountaineering parents, making the natural world her jungle gym, the writings of Annie Dillard and Henry David Thoreau her textbooks. But when tragedy strikes on an Ecuadorian 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.

thoughts on the art of holding on and letting go Received in exchange for a honest review. 

S. Becker says:

Unique, poetic and thoughtful When tragedy strikes rock climber Cara Jenkins’ and her mountain climbing parents, her world is turned upside down. Her parents decide to deal with their grief by immersing themselves in an adventure abroad, and Cara is sent to live with her grandparents (whom she barely knows) in Michigan. Once there, Cara feels lost, essentially dropping out of life: she stops climbing, stops socializing, and stops doing her schoolwork. 

Miss Print says:

ultimately hopeful Cara Jenkins is a nationally ranked competitive climber. Homeschooled by her mountaineer parents, Cara has always felt at home on rock faces and cliffs. When disaster strikes during a climb in Ecuador, Cara’s carefully ordered world is completely upended.
