Ever since the day when everything changed, Cal Scott’s answer has been to run—run from her mother, who’s fighting cancer, run from her father, whom she can’t forgive, and run from those classmates who never seemed to “get” her. The only thing Cal runs toward is nearby Mount Meteorite, named for the extraterrestrial object some claim crashed there fifty years ago. Cal spends her afternoons plotting to summit the mountain so she can find the magic she believes will make possible the impossible: to heal her mother. But no one has successfully reached its peak—no one who’s lived to tell about it, anyway. Then Cal meets Rosine Kanambe, a girl who’s faced more impossibles than anyone should have to. Rosine has her own secret plan for the mountain and its magic, and she convinces Cal they can summit its peak if they work together. As the girls climb high and dig deep to face the mountain’s challenges, Cal learns from Rosine what real courage looks like. She begins to wonder if the magic she’s been seeking all this time is really the kind she needs. Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo’s third novel is a glowing story of friendship, inner strength, and what happens when the impossible becomes possible.
