Still Points North by Leigh Newman

Ever stopped to really consider how the woman you’ve become is a result of all the decisions you’ve made, no matter how monumental or insignificant those decisions might have seemed in the moment? That’s the essential message of Still Points North (The Dial Press), Leigh Newman’s memoir about reconciling her childhood in Alaska with her adulthood in New York. “You don’t always know you’re making a choice when you’re making a choice,” Newman says. “Other times, you know you’re making a choice that could determine the rest of your life.” It’s a thought-provoking book, and one you should read with your sneakers nearby: When you’re finished, you’ll feel like you need to go hiking to sort it all out.
