Book Review

Interesting story, and especially inspiring to young people to see another young person so committed to reach a challenging goal. The writing is very straightforward - almost a list of things that happened sequentially - so there's not a lot of reflection, description, or character arc, but some readers will see that as a plus. A bit humbling, especially if your greatest adventure this week was trying a new restaurant.
