Inspired by True Events

One mother. One daughter. One adventure of a lifetime that will change their relationship forever.

When her troubled teenage daughter, Nova, is hell-bent on self-destruction, Tessa Donahue makes a desperate bid to save their future. 

Together they will leave behind the familiar and step into a world of whimsical wonder. Nestled amidst the lush greenery of the Great Smoky Mountains, four unique treehouses offer a breathtaking escape as they embark on a journey filled with self-discovery and reconnection. 

It will force Tessa and Nova to face their demons and fight for understanding as they realize this may be the last chance to repair their relationship before Nova graduates from high school.

This poignant and heartwarming tale of a mother’s unconditional love and a child’s fight for independence will remind you that life’s greatest adventures are often found in the most unexpected places.

Breath of Fresh Air!!!

Loved this breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively!) story of an exhausted mother and her angsty teen daughter, escaping their realities to enjoy adventures that bring them together!
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Tessa and Nova, as their relationship morphed and grew throughout the story. Even more so, I adored the female empowerment message and Nova ending up on top after clawing her way out of such a crap situation.

Definitely makes me want to book some breathtaking treehouse excursions in TN and make memories with my own kiddos! :)

I wanted to join this journey

This book is so well written! I wanted to jump in the Jeep with Tessa and Nova! I laughed out loud and I cried throughout this beautiful story. Bryan does a beautiful job wrapping together the journey of a daughter and mother and a trip of a lifetime through treehouses in Tennessee. As a parent nothing is scarier and exciting all at once than watching your child move into adulthood! Go grab a copy today-you won’t regret it!

An adventure you'll love to go on with Tessa & Nova!

With my own empty nest on the horizon, I could totally relate to the loving tension between Tessa and Nova as they worked on understanding each other as more than just parent-child. I even ordered my own "The { } And" card set in order to have deeper conversations with my own sons! At the heart of this engaging read about parenting is the line that resonated most with me: "I want you to go out there and chase your dream, wherever it leads, and if you stumble and need a place to catch your breath, you always have me." Bryan's writing of this mother-daughter adventure was one I totally enjoyed being part of and hated seeing come to an end.
