Travis' Ladder by Winnie Dowden Wyatt

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Travis, a twelve year old, views his life's challenges as climbing a ladder--just as his grandfather told him. He is helped in his ascent by his grandfather, folks with whom he lives, and his coach. He finds his first "love" and is rejected; he finds his strength, true friends, but almost slips off his ladder. He meets a man with a transplanted heart who helps him appreciate the goodness of life.
