This Girl Climbs Trees (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
What is a new teen to do when her father chops down her first best friend, a motherly maple that has guarded her window since birth? Eliza Mills frets over her beloved tree where she climbed to the very top, sat and thought and wondered. Who is left to listen to her teen worries? Who can help her cope? What's up there, out there? If there is a god, why has he - or she - taken away what and who she loves? Perhaps some help lies inside a mysterious box left behind by her dying grandfather. Convinced he is trying to send her one final message, she believes this box remains her last hope. What secrets will its contents reveal? Eliza Mills takes the reader on a journey of life and death gently - and humorously - depositing us at the door of self-discovery.
