Charming & Adventurous

There's something to be said about reading the dedication of a book. It gives insight behind the writer, and sometimes there is that inkling of who the author is, behind their words, their characters. This is the second book of Alderson's that I've read, and I love this one, too. Adventures in Backpacking to say the least. I love Zelda. She's one of those characters that just stand out because she is relatable. Who doesn't want to escape from burnout, grab a backpack and lead yourself on an adventure. As any good story, Zelda becomes in over her head, and her entanglement is clearly terrifying. I had to read this book from start to finish in one sitting, as I couldn't put it down, not even for a second. The ending had me stunned, finding closure, and hoping for another adventure at the same time. And, always take the time to read the acknowledgement at the end of the book. It's worth the read!
