Juggling Fire (YA)
Rachel sets off to hike through the Yukon to her family's cabin--the last place that her father was known to be. Her mother is not thrilled with the idea but lets her go off on her journey with her dog, Brooks as her only companion, save for the golden bear that follows her on her travels. This book was interesting to me because my husband was in the Yukon at the time I was reading this. I almost gave up on the book when something bad happened to Brooks but I had to keep reading to find out the final outcome for the doggy. Rachel always made up her own endings to fairy tales and the book went back and forth between her fairy tales and her journey and that got a bit annoying at times.
