Jess is a teen who after recently losing her mom and slowly healing from a leg injury, finds herself back with the dad she hasn't seen in years. He is a survivalist living in the Canadian Wilderness and has made some mistakes. One of those mistakes comes back to see him and Jess witnesses another tragedy. She must flee into the woods with a minimal amount of clothing, food and supplies and only her father's dog for company. Somehow she solves one problem after another and finds the strength to survive and avenge her dad's killers.
This is a tough book to read because you see a broken girl that must bounce back after so much loss and you prepare yourself for the end at the end of each page. It is also one of the most uplifting books I have read in a long time because she finds so much strength and hope. This is HATCHET for teens and adults. You will start paying more attention to building simple shelters or fishing without a rod just in case.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
