“You think you’re having a bad day? Ashley is alone, lost in the wilderness, without supplies or even shoes, and the infection taking hold of her badly crushed foot will likely kill her before she dies of starvation and/or exposure. This is a thrilling tale of courage and stamina that will remind readers to sign up and pay attention when that next survival training class at summer camp is offered.”Becky, Rediscovered Books
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.
