Descriere

Hatchet meets Wild in this harrowing YA survival story about a teenage girl's attempt to endure the impossible, from the Edgar Award-winning author of The Female of the Species, Mindy McGinnis.

The world is not tame. Ashley knows this truth deep in her bones, more at home with trees overhead than a roof.

So when she goes hiking in the Smokies with her friends for a night of partying, the falling dark and creaking trees are second nature to her. But people are not tame either. And when Ashley catches her boyfriend with another girl, drunken rage sends her running into the night, stopped only by a nasty fall into a ravine.

Morning brings the realization that she's alone—and far off trail. Lost in undisturbed forest and with nothing but the clothes on her back, Ashley must figure out how to survive with the red streak of infection creeping up her leg.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was Rugged and did not shy away from the brutal truth. Being lost in the wild is nothing like camping. It isn’t a good time. Far from it. Not only do you have to worry about the rough terrain, with ravines you can fall down. Plus the poisonous plants, insects and reptiles and the hungry meat eating animals who are always on the hunt for their next meal. You have to worry about you, yourself. Starvation, dehydration, being injured and alone....all those things will add up and your body and mind will suffer. Your mental health will plummet to the point where you won’t even remember your name or what day it is. You’ll be talking to yourself, arguing with yourself....contemplating if it would be better just to off yourself instead of going any further. Now that is terrifying!

    Mindy is one of a select few authors I always pre-order. While there are faint reminders of The Girl Who Lived Tom Gordon here, this is darker, deeper and grittier. You'll wince and cringe at points in it, but you won't stop turning the pages. Ashley's journey after losing it when she sees her boyfriend and his ex in a very compromising situation, might begin with emotional pain, but that is dwarfed by the physical hurt following it. She's gutsy and stubborn, but even more interesting, is her self-reflection, often merging with what might be hallucinations as she refuses to give up. This is a solid candidate for school and public libraries where strong female protagonists and gripping adventure tales are valued.

    Mindy seems to be a hit or miss for everyone and that’s because she writes the most raw and complex stories with major dark twists or reality checks. This is my third book by her and the second I loved. Everything about this book was so realistic, from Ashley’s rough and tough personality to the emotions and pain she went through to surviving to the very end.


    The narration by Brittany Pressley was really good too!
