It started out as an ordinary summer. But the minute thirteen-year-old Zinny covered the old, overgrown trail that ran through the woods behind her family's house, she realized that things were about to change.

Right from the start, Zinny knew that uncovering the trail would be more than just a summer project. It was her chance to finally make people notice her, and to have a place she could call her very own. But more than that, Zinny knew that the trail somehow held the key to all kinds of questions. And that- the only way to understand her family, her Aunt Jessie's death, and herself, was to find out where it went.

This was my favorite book towards the end of elementary school. Zinny feels invisible in her own life, until one day she finds a path in her backyard that changes her summer and her life forever. This book deals with a number of adolescent issues, namely death and the guilt associated with it, but is the best book about becoming a young-adult somebody that I have ever read.
