A solo cross country bike road trip of a 12 – year old girl raised in a Mostly Silent Monastery may have been written for children, but this spunky read infused with adventures, fantastical characters, a running of the pigs and unending eats, will make you giggle and woot out loud. You might just find bits of yourself as you cheer on this determined, strong, somewhat awkward girl and her love of cycling across the great American panorama. The protagonist’s journey is brimming with challenges and kindnesses as she makes her own way across the landscape of friendships, problem solving and destinies many of us have travelled in our own hearts.
