It started out as an ordinary summer. But the minute thirteen-year-old Zinny covered the old, overgrown trail that ran through the woods behind her family's house, she realized that things were about to change.

Right from the start, Zinny knew that uncovering the trail would be more than just a summer project. It was her chance to finally make people notice her, and to have a place she could call her very own. But more than that, Zinny knew that the trail somehow held the key to all kinds of questions. And that -- the only way to understand her family, her Aunt Jessie's death, and herself, was to find out where it went.

From the author of the Newbery Medal-winning Walk Two Moons, here is an intricately woven tale of a young girl who sets out in search of her place in the world -- and discovers it in her own backyard.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a beautifully told story, with some very funny moments.”  

    Guardian (London)

  • “Creech’s language is as fresh as the natural wonders Zinny encounters in the woods…This sturdy but sensitive tale is Creech’s best yet.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Harper brings Zinny’s voice to life—and voice is this author’s strong suit.” 


  • “Creech crams her novel full of wonderful characters, proficient dialogue, bracing descriptions, and a merry use of language. A bundle of contradictions, Zinny is at her prickly, individualistic best when fending off the overtures of 16-year-old Jake Boone, whom she (mistakenly) suspects of using her to get to her older sister.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • ALA Best Book for Young Adults

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amy | 2/5/2014

    " This is another good book by Sharon Creech. The author does a great job of portraying her characters. Her main character is a 13 year old girl dealing with death, love, guilt, growing up, and trying to figure out who she is. Even though I didn't have to deal with all of the situations she does, it strongly reminded me of how I felt and thought at that age, which shows that growing up is a fairly universal thing, we all struggle with similar issues. "
