When I was 14, my greatest ambition was to play video games. When I was a teenager I “competed” in a bicycle race, that I failed miserably in. I played basketball, but showed little motivation to push myself, especially when it became painful. I was most certainly not thinking about multiple day treks across the polar icecaps.

It could have been jealousy or possibly pride, but I’m ashamed that my first thought upon seeing this book was that she probably had super rich parents who could buy her everything she needed to make this type of adventure possible. This of course was where I was wrong. Yes, money helps to physically get to the starting line, but after reading this book you will realize that strength, skill and mental prowess are paramount to success.

While My Polar Dream is a quick and easy to read book, I appreciated the simplicity and honesty of Jade’s feelings and thoughts. This book is a great reminder for teens and adults alike that much of what we are able to accomplish is limited by how willing we are to push through our physical boundaries.

Like all great explorers, adventurers and folks who push their bodies to the limits, Jade is an inspiration to us all for what can truly be accomplished with enough tenacity.

The hardest part is doing it.
