The Explorer is the sixth book in the Mountains series by Phoebe Alexander. What a wonderful addition to the series this is. Even though it could be read as a standalone, I really recommend reading (at least) the first three books in the series before starting on this one as they are where we first meet our MC, as well as providing background information and other relevant details which enhance your appreciation of this book.
Abigail Lynde (Abby) is Sarah’s daughter (from books #1 – #4) and we now get to follow her and find out so much more bout her. She is just starting out on her Freshman year in college- and has a great understanding of what she wants to do with her life- but is at a loss as to ‘who’ she really is. She feels she has to be so many ‘different’ people to everyone in her life- presenting a different version of herself to them all. It’s exhausting and makes everything so much more complicated. We follow her on her journey of self-discovery- as she finds her true ‘identity’ and through all the highs and lows that come with it, as she navigates through trying to balance it all along with college life.
Thank you, Ms. Alexander!
