Dolly’s is pleased to welcome author of The Luckiest Scar on Earth, Ana Maria Spagna to the store on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 6:30pm for a signing event!
Open to the community — come one, come all!
In The Luckiest Scar on Earth, fourteen-year-old Charlotte moves from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to Washington’s Cascade Mountains, where she hopes to continue training for the national snowboarding championships. After her father signs an anti-development petition, she loses access to the local resort and takes to the backcountry, where she meets nature on its own terms. When adventure turns to tragedy, Charlotte learns that even our deepest scars can be lucky ones.
“Spagna writes passionately about the West, creates a strong and athletic heroine, and addresses many realistic issues teens confront.”
