Could he still be alive? Lily has to know, and she recruits her sister to make a trip to Denali to find out.
Author Hannah Moderow tries to make Lily a smart kid, but Lily continuously makes very poor decisions, decisions which are life-threatening. Even Lily's mother and the park rangers make questionable decisions.
Overall, this tale was unsatisfying and a bit irritating. Lily's Mountain does not make the grade.
The Alaska setting is wonderful. Moderow's novel taught me a lot about climbing without it seeming like she was teaching. The descriptions of Alaska were also amazing, bringing a part of the world to readers that most have not experienced firsthand. Moderow's ability to show Lily's grieving process is done in a way that tweens will understand.
I loved this novel, which is Moderow's first. I can't wait to see what else she writes.
This book is recommended for readers ages 10 to 12 years. In terms of the book's length, language and the action of the plot, I think that is a good target. Older readers would enjoy this story too. It does have some mature themes of grief and the irresponsibility of poorly prepared girls wandering the Alaskan wilderness. Those topics might be better suited for a reader in middle school. My kids read this book and they said they thought it was a good story. I'm glad to have it in our home library.
