Molly Norris-Norquay cannot forgive Tray for her brother’s debilitating accident and is determined to do their planned hike along the Pacific Crest Trail on her own. But when Tray refuses to back out, she must figure out how to trust him—and how to feel about him—if they’re going to make it to the end of the trail. By Morris finalist and Stonewall Honor Book author Jen Ferguson (Métis). 

Before that awful Saturday, Molly used to be inseparable from her brother, Hank, and his best friend, Tray. The indoor climbing accident that left Hank with a traumatic brain injury filled Molly with anger. While she knows the accident wasn’t Tray’s fault, she will never forgive him for being there and failing to stop the damage.But she can’t forgive herself for not being there either. Or for letting the deadline to accept her university entrance offer pass.Determined to go on the trio’s postgraduation hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, even without Hank, Molly packs her bag. But when her parents put Tray in charge of looking out for her, she is stuck backpacking with the person who incites her easy anger.Despite all her planning, the trail she’ll walk has a few more twists and turns ahead.Award-winning author of The Summer of Bitter and Sweet and Those Pink Mountain Nights, Jen Ferguson has written a powerful story about teens grappling with resentment, grief, enduring friendship, and how to move forward with a life that’s not what they’d imagined.
