The Gutsy Girl: Escapades for Your Life of Epic Adventure is definitely one book you will never forget!
Not only is it a great read for girls but for adults too. Every page is an adventure and a real page-turner.
When Caroline Paul was young she admits that she was scared of a lot of things but one day she decided to create something different. A milk carton ship and along the way she decided that being scared isn’t much fun and she was missing out on a lot of things.
She changed her mindset and her outlook and went on to live a exciting life full of goals, challenges, and adventures. She chronicles the adventures in this book including:
- Attempting to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for setting the record for long-distance crawling
- Climbing the Golden Gate Bridge
- Learning to paraglide
- Climb Mount Denali
- Compete in the Olympics
- …and more
Caroline’s stories are harrowing and often put you on the edge of your seat. At the same time they are funny and will have you laughing a second later.
The book is also full of fun facts, tips, activity ideas, blank pages for journaling with writing prompts, and comical illustrations.
Gutsy Girl is a great read that will spark your spirit of adventure whether you are reading it as an adult, a teen, or a tween. It’s a book that you won’t want to put down. Every time you find yourself finishing one chapter of adventure you will want to dive into the next.
