*Starred Review* Jess hasn't seen her father in years, so she doesn't know what to expect when she lands at the remote Alaska airport where he's supposed to pick her up. Still, she's surprised by an even further journey into the back country of Canada, where her father lives off the grid in a cabin he built by himself. Her new situation is tough, and the debilitating injuries and chronic pain she sustained during the car crash that killed her mother make it even worse. But when her father is murdered by men from his past, who burn his cabin to the ground, Jess has to rely on the meager skills she learned in their brief time together to survive a winter in the wilderness. In Marshall's captivating, suspenseful debut, Jess' struggle to survive becomes vivid and palpable. In her intense internal narrative, she gradually reveals the circumstances of her father's murder, while tracing her painstaking efforts to cobble together a shelter and hunt for food. Marshall's evocative, visceral language cultivates a vivid sense of the sheer physicality of Jess' survival, and she breathes vibrant life not only into Jess' character but also that of her irascible, loyal dog, Bo. With masterful pacing, rich characterization, a dynamic voice, and a thrilling blend of wilderness survival and revenge, this is an engrossing read from a writer to watch. Grades 8-11.
