Description - Winter Break by Astrid Fitzgerald
On the first day of a family ski vacation, Caroline is introduced to Lorenzo, a handsome philosophy student from Florence by her friend Sylvia. Dancing at a disco into the evening, they miss the last ski lift to their chalets, and, unwisely, ascend on foot, losing their way in a blinding blizzard and nearly die of exposure. Her frantic parents react by grounding Caroline, but sneaking out to look for her lost ski, she descends into a deep gully and enters a mysterious world that changes her life forever. The everyday world of stressed-out, argumentative parents, demanding friends, ski classes and holiday cheer gives way to a new reality where Caroline discovers who she really is and what life truly means the kind of things she d never heard of in school. Armed with new clarity and stillness in the midst of powerful feelings, she returns to school, where unexpected challenges test her new-found knowledge, understanding and intuitive powers. Full of mystery, adventure, crisis and romance, this novel for teen and adult readers offers the added dimension of providing a thoughtful, reflective, and non-dogmatic guide to a meaningful, self-reliant and conscious life. *** Winner of the prestigious Mom's Choice Award, and Finalist in Foreword Magazine s Book of the Year competition and an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinals Award ***
