Joanna Pearson recommends
The High Climber of Dark Water Bay (2018)
Caroline Arden
"The High Climber of Dark Water Bay took me back to the best books of my youth--an old-fashioned (in the best possible way!) adventure tale for all the once-and-future Jo Marches out there! I loved Lizzie's honesty and self-reliance and curiosity. Arden has created a world of rich and vivid detail that I was reluctant to leave."
