Climb is definitely a grand read!
What a grand story in Climb by Philip Barker. I haven't read work from this author before, and I enjoyed this story. Here we meet Ashley, as it is the first book of the The Ashley Davies Trilogy. This is a remarkable journey filled with strength, triumph and defeat. Ashley has something to prove to herself, and also deal with family secrets, and bullying. Sometimes it is more than she can handle. She is a very realistic teenager, and has more than the average teen's issues, but of course, you never know what happens behind closed doors. Climb refers to not only her rock climbing contest that she enters, but climbing out of the dispare and tragedy. Climb is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book, giving my honest and unbiased review. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. Amy's Bookshelf Reviews recommends that anyone who reads this book, to also write a review.
