"...the problem that was endless, which I broke into little pieces; the problem that gave me hints with each fall..." This true story reveals how Ashima Shiraishi, a young, champion rock climber, calls each boulder a problem. Breaking the problem down into pieces, she proceeds to solve one piece at a time. And the only way to learn how to get to the top is to fall, dust yourself off, and try again using the hints each fall offers. This is powerful storytelling, modeling, and life-giving because, of course, the principles apply far beyond a physical wall. An excellent biography.
Publisher Summary
From Ashima Shiraishi, one of the world's youngest and most skilled climbers, comes a true story of strength and perseverance--in rock climbing and in life.

To a rock climber, a boulder is called a "problem," and you solve it by climbing to the top. There are twists and turns, falls and scrapes, and obstacles that seem insurmountable until you learn to see the possibilities within them. And then there is the moment of triumph, when there's nothing above you but sky and nothing below but a goal achieved.

Ashima Shiraishi draws on her experience as a world-class climber in this story that challenges readers to tackle the problems in their own lives and rise to greater heights than they would have ever thought possible.
