The Climb is a story about my brother and I's childhood. It is set from my point of view and takes you on a journey throughout some of the struggles we faced but how those struggles made us who we are today. Most of the things discussed are things that we have not talked about and may be hard to read to some people.
What a story of hope!
As a former teacher of Adrianna, I am so so proud of her willingness to share her story in order to help and encourage other people. Adrianna, your heart of gold shines through in every word!
This is a wonderful enlightening story of a shy girl who had enough inner strength to keep her going on the path she perceived I her young mind. It is well written and easy reading but never allowing to easily put this book down. The suspense hooks you to the end.
Coming from the same small town as you, I can definitely relate on so many levels. It is hard having the mentality “People have it much worse than I do so I can’t complain about my life” because even though others have it much worse, you’re feelings are still valid. I have felt the same way about my life. I started reading this and could not stop until the end. Our town has been fully taken over by drugs and it’s sad when you can not see a way out. I feel for you and your mother. It’s so easy to be an amazing person and mother yet still get caught up in that type of lifestyle. The best, most rewarding thing you could’ve done is what you did. Absolutely loved this!
