"This coming–of–age story will appeal to extreme sports enthusiasts, environmental activists, and fans of strong female characters." —BOOKLIST Fourteen–year–old Charlotte moves from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to Washington's Cascade Mountains, where she hopes to continue training for the national snowboarding championships. After her father signs an anti–development petition, she loses access to the local resort and takes to the backcountry, where she meets nature on its own terms. When adventure turns to tragedy, Charlotte learns that even our deepest scars can be lucky ones.
