Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Rebecca Lowman passionately narrates the compelling story of Sam--a 7-year-old hopeful girl with a loving but absent dad with addictions; a single, overbearing mother who yearns for a better life for Sam; and a younger brother with behavioral issues. Sam discovers a love of rock climbing, and this becomes a metaphor for how she lives her life as we follow her from age 7 to age 19. Lowman excels at giving Sam a maturing voice as she develops from an exuberant child into a sullen teen and then a determined young adult. Lowman hits every nuance of family drama and personal growth. Listeners will revel in Sam's journey. L.M.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
