Description of this Book

Fourteen-year-old Jade Hameister had a dream: to complete the Polar Hat Trick. In 2015, she skied to the North Pole. In 2016, she completed the Greenland Crossing. In 2018, she arrived at the South Pole. This is the story of an adventurer who never gave up - who set herself incredible challenges beyond her years and experience. An adventurer who endured extremes of cold and blizzards; treacherous terrain where one wrong step could be fatal; struggled through strastugi, ice rubble and emotional lows to achieve an extraordinary goal. Along the way, she made a sandwich for online trolls, inspired young people, and made international headlines. At sixteen, Jade Hameister became the youngest person in history to complete the Polar Hat Trick.
