The first Ashley Davies Novel

by Philip Barker and Katrina Churchill


A small-town family’s tragic secret has a teenage girl turning to competitive rock climbing to find answers...and herself.

Deserted by her father and kept in the dark about her brother’s accident, high schooler Ashley Davies has her own secrets. When she enters a forbidden rock-climbing contest to teach her bully a lesson, she ends up uncovering old wounds about her family’s connection to another’s heartache.

Climb is a masterfully written coming of age story of resilience, grit, and self-discovery in the most heartbreaking of circumstances. 


This book is perfect for all ages, with or without any knowledge or interest in climbing, it's just a beautiful Australian book.
