The book with too many expectations I found it to be a pretty easy read that I did enjoy I did feel like there was something missing from the story that could have taken it to the next level for me but I am glad that I took a chance and decided to read this oneJess has not had it easy lately She was recently in chance and decided to read this oneJess has not had it easy lately She was recently in automobile accident with her mother Her mother did not survive the accident and Jess sustained
SOME PRETTY SERIOUS INJURIES SHE HASpretty serious injuries She has time in the hospital recovering and was eventually placed with a foster family Eventually she is sent to be with her father who has not played much of a role in her life and lives off the grid There is no way that Jess could have prepared herself for living with her father He lives in a tiny cabin in the middle of the woods in Canada along with his dog Bo He has very few connections to the outside world and lives off of the land When Jess arrives he starts to show her some of the skills she will need to know in her new home Jess really doesn t have a lot of interest in learning the things her father is trying to teach her and is mad at the whole situationThe book is written as Jess s ournal and starts out with alternating chapters of before and after which I thought worked really well It becomes uite obvious that this have taken a wrong turn very early in the book but it does take some time to find out exactly what did happen This is a story of survival Jess finds herself alone in the woods with no shelter few supplies and not a lot of skill with only a dog as support I did like Jess as a character I felt so bad for Jess and her desperation feels very authentic She has a lot of small victories and uite a few set backs all of which could prove to be fatal I would recommend this book to fans of survival stories Jess is a tough character that is working hard to survive in a nearly impossible situation I wouldn t hesitate to read of Kate Alice Marshall s work I received a digital review copy of this book from Viking Books for Young Readers via First to ReadInitial.

ThoughtsThis was 35 star read for me For now I am going with 3 stars but I "may bump it to 4 after I can think about it for a bit This "bump it to 4 after I can think about it for a bit This really a survival story Jess must learn to live off the land with only a dog for help and support The first part of the book is set up with alternating chapters of before the event that left her all alone and after as she is trying to survive I feel like three stars always look a little weird so let me clarify that this is a positive three star rating This is a compelling survival story that is marketed as a revenge story and I ust didn t get exactly what I was hoping But let s be real this was still was hoping But let s be real this was still So my main thought about this is that this is very well written but it s essentially Mes recettes au baby-robot just a survival story and doesn t go much beyond Maybe my main problem was that Iust didn t get exactly what I wanted The revenge element is there but it s very low on intrigue and definitely not the main plot point We don t even see the lead plotting revenge until like page 200 and in a book where the marketing that caught me was Revenge this was disappointing But on a counterexample it was the plot that kept me reading survival stories are always fun for me I binged this in a day And yeah as survival stories go it didn t do anything new but it didn t have to Survival stories are great and always have been and always will remain so so who really caresI mean I guess it made the book a little less entertaining for me I did not find the main character Jess particularly compelling on her own which is something that tends to really set survival stories apart for me Jess has a disability and the narrative does a really good ob with it But that has a disability and the narrative does a really good ob with it But that kind of the whole list of everything that set the story apart But it was still an interesting uick read I wouldn t rush to recommend but I m certainly not going to tell you to take it off your TBR if you like survival stories TW view spoilerparent death on page parent dead bodies feat body horror guns anddddd the dog dies hide spoiler. ’s dog for company Jess must forage and hunt for food build shelter and keep herself warm Some days it feels like the wild is out to destroy her but she’s stronger than she ever imaginedJess will survive She has to She knows who killed her father and she wants reveng.
