Description of this Book

Jess is stranded in the woods. She has few supplies and only her dog for company. Her survival skills are limited, and she has disabilities that make physical labor a challenge. And winter is on its way. How did she get here? Alternating between the past and the present, this tightly-paced novel tells the story of a girl who survived a car crash that killed her mother, then was pulled from foster care and sent to live with her estranged survivalist father in the remote Canadian wilderness. Jess was just beginning to get to know her dad when a secret from his past paid them a visit, leaving their cabin burned to the ground and Jess's father dead. Now, Jess must fight with everything she has to forage and hunt for food, build shelter, and keep herself warm. But she will survive. She has to survive. Because she wants revenge.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Raves for I Am Still Alive An expertly conceived plot plus a true heroine (and her dog) make for an original, engrossing, and twisty survival story that I tore through compulsively. You won't regret the hours that disappear when you read this one. -Nancy Werlin, National Book Award honoree and New York Times bestselling author I couldn't set this book down--the words actually made me shiver. It's Hatchet meets The Revenant, infused with fierce, undaunted girl power. -S.A. Bodeen, award-winning author of The Raft
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
