Can a New York City girl and her little dog survive ALONE on the Appalachian Trail?

Eleven-year-old Megan is stuck in the wilds of Vermont for the summer with no Internet, no cell phone, and worst of all, no best friend. So when she gets lost on the Appalachian Trail with only her little dog, Arp, for company, she decides she might as well hike all the way to Massachusetts, where her best friend, Lucy, is spending the summer. Life on the trail isn't easy, and Mega faces everything from wild animals and raging rivers to tofu jerky and no bathrooms. On the way, though, she comes to some surprising realizations—about who she's been in the past, and who she wants to be in the future—and the journey changes from a spur-of-the-moment lark to a heroic quest to prove herself to Lucy, her family, and the world!
