Twelve-year-old Dani is running away from home, or whatâ€™s left of home anyway. Her older brother, who had muscular dystrophy, died a few months ago. Then her father left and her parents got divorced. Now home is just Dani and her sad, silent mother, and Daniâ€™s got to get away. She plans to do something amazing, and go where her parents will never find her: sheâ€™s going to hike the whole Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine. The trail is a legend in her family, the place where her parents met, fell in love, and got married 14 years before. Unfortunately for her master plan, her mother doesnâ€™t have much trouble figuring out where Daniâ€™s gone. Now itâ€™s the two of them, hiking for as long as Dani can manage to persuade her mother to keep going. But Daniâ€™s got an even longer emotional journey to makeâ€”and itâ€™s one she and her mom need to make together.From the Hardcover edition.
