An exciting and deeply moving story of survival, courage, and friendship on the Appalachian Trail.
Toby has to finish the final thing on The List, which is a list of brave, daring, totally awesome things that he and his best friend, Lucas, planned to do together. The only item left is to hike the Appalachian Trail, but now Lucas isn’t there to do it with him.
Toby’s determined to hike the trail alone and fulfill their pact, which means dealing with the little things — the blisters, the heat, the hunger — and the big things — the bears, the loneliness, and the memories.
