Review: I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall

I Am Still AliveGenre: Young Adult (YA)

Rating: ★★★★

Synopsis (from Goodreads):


Jess is alone. Her cabin has burned to the ground. She knows if she doesn’t act fast, the cold will kill her before she has time to worry about food. But she is still alive-for now.


Jess hadn’t seen her survivalist, off-the-grid dad in over a decade. But after a car crash killed her mother and left her injured, she was forced to move to his cabin in the remote Canadian wilderness. Just as Jess was beginning to get to know him, a secret from a past paid them a visit, leaving her father dead and Jess stranded.


With only her father’s dog for company, Jess must forage and hunt for food, built shelter, and keep herself warm. Some days it feels like the wild is out to destroy her, but she’s stronger than she ever imagined.

Jess will survive. She has to. She knows who killed her father…and she wants revenge.

My Review:

Thank you First to Read for the advanced copy of this book.

The book is good. It is full of suspense and surviving. I couldn’t put the book down because the plot is interesting and easy to read. I felt sad in some parts of it but I enjoyed it. I Am Still Alive reminds me of a book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. If you are looking for a YA book that is about the main character who is surviving in the woods, then you should get this book.
