    This is a decent story. I expected it to be about survival, and you know what, that?s exactly what it?s about. Jess? mother died, so she is sent to live with her elusive father in Alaska?er, I mean, Canada. Not that it makes much difference to the author since her idea of Ca...

    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 just? didn?t get exactly what I was hoping. But let?s be real, this was still entertainin...

    Every time I read a book like this I realize how very dead I would be if I ever got lost in the woods! Put me up in the wilderness of Canada or Alaska and throw me in complete darkness and snow - and forget it - I MIGHT last 5 minutes. Jess is alone. Her mother dies in a car crash, ...

    I love a good survival story but this story felt like a non-stop pity party from start to finish. I got so tired of listening to Jess cry and feel sorry for herself. It was just way too much. I seriously found myself having more sympathy for the dog, then I did Jess. It definitely need...

    Holy shit this book was good. It kind of reminded me of The Martian (I mean, duh, it is a survival book) though instead of space Jess is stuck in the middle of nowhere in Canada. Which to me makes it 100 times scarier because I may never make it to Mars but I can sure as hell get...

    This book is absolutely RIVETING. Brutal, human, hopeful, and completely unique. I kept on thinking that this was the spiritual heir to SARAH BISHOP, a comparison I don't make lightly. This book is going to stay with me for a long time. I'm still gathering all my feeling about it, but ...

    This book cover caught my eye enough to read the summary. Reading the summary enticed me enough to read the book and I?m so happy I did. Hatchet by Gary Paulsen is one of my favorite books, so I thought this would be along the same lines only with a girl instead of a boy. I Am Still ...

    I almost finished this book, it wasn't a bad book. It just happened to have my trigger in it and when I realized what was going to happen - I peeked at the end and realized there was no way in hell I'd be ok with finishing it. I'm still counting the book as read since I read the majori...

    DNf after several chapters (though I may come back to this book one day). I?m just the kind of reader that needs multiple characters to keep me interested, and this book definitely reflected Jess?s solitary environment too much for me. What I read was well-written, though, so I may...

    Every time I read a book like this I realize how very dead I would be if I ever got lost in the woods! Put me up in the wilderness of Canada or Alaska and throw me in complete darkness and snow - and forget it - I MIGHT last 5 minutes. Jess is alone. Her mother dies in a car crash, ...

    I love a good survival story but this story felt like a non-stop pity party from start to finish. I got so tired of listening to Jess cry and feel sorry for herself. It was just way too much. I seriously found myself having more sympathy for the dog, then I did Jess. It definitely need...

    Holy shit this book was good. It kind of reminded me of The Martian (I mean, duh, it is a survival book) though instead of space Jess is stuck in the middle of nowhere in Canada. Which to me makes it 100 times scarier because I may never make it to Mars but I can sure as hell get...

    When I was a kid, one of my favorite books was My Side of the Mountain, in which a boy named Sam decides life in New York City isn't for him, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains and learns how to be independent and to survive in the woods. I vividly remember reading about how he ...

    Kate Marshall's debut is nothing short of extraordinary. I AM STILL ALIVE reads like a YA THE REVENANT mashed with a bit of WINTER'S BONE, with all of the wild and the revenge and the survival, and a badass teen girl as its protagonist. It's a harrowing, disturbing, and yet deeply h...

    "I am still alive" is Jess' mantra as she finds herself in the middle of the Alaskan or Canadian woods. She is in not sure exactly where she is. Everyone she loves is dead and no one is looking for her except maybe some bad guys. This is one of my favorite YA novel so far this year. I ...

    I Am Still Alive by Kate Marshall 2 stars Jess is completely alone in the wilderness. Her father is gone and the cabin is burned down. She has to survive with only her dad?s dog and a few scavenged supplies from the remains of the cabin. Jess knows she doesn?t have a long tim...

    I Am Still Alive is a pulse-pounding survival novel, epic and wild. There is no better beginning to an action adventure story than the character informing the reader that they are still alive when they should be dead. The prologue certainly gets the heart racing and it had me hooked on...

    When I was a kid, one of my favorite books was My Side of the Mountain, in which a boy named Sam decides life in New York City isn't for him, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains and learns how to be independent and to survive in the woods. I vividly remember reading about how he ...

    Kate Marshall's debut is nothing short of extraordinary. I AM STILL ALIVE reads like a YA THE REVENANT mashed with a bit of WINTER'S BONE, with all of the wild and the revenge and the survival, and a badass teen girl as its protagonist. It's a harrowing, disturbing, and yet deeply h...

    This book is absolutely RIVETING. Brutal, human, hopeful, and completely unique. I kept on thinking that this was the spiritual heir to SARAH BISHOP, a comparison I don't make lightly. This book is going to stay with me for a long time. I'm still gathering all my feeling about it, but ...

    I've already mentioned in my review of Notes from My Captivity how this is a more sadder and depressing story, which is kind of to be expected considering the MC lost everything and had to survive while being badly injured in the wilderness alone with a dog while only having revenge on...

    This book cover caught my eye enough to read the summary. Reading the summary enticed me enough to read the book and I?m so happy I did. Hatchet by Gary Paulsen is one of my favorite books, so I thought this would be along the same lines only with a girl instead of a boy. I Am Still ...

    I Am Still Alive by Kate Marshall 2 stars Jess is completely alone in the wilderness. Her father is gone and the cabin is burned down. She has to survive with only her dad?s dog and a few scavenged supplies from the remains of the cabin. Jess knows she doesn?t have a long tim...

    I Am Still Alive is a pulse-pounding survival novel, epic and wild. There is no better beginning to an action adventure story than the character informing the reader that they are still alive when they should be dead. The prologue certainly gets the heart racing and it had me hooked on...

    When I was a kid, one of my favorite books was My Side of the Mountain, in which a boy named Sam decides life in New York City isn't for him, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains and learns how to be independent and to survive in the woods. I vividly remember reading about how he ...

    Kate Marshall's debut is nothing short of extraordinary. I AM STILL ALIVE reads like a YA THE REVENANT mashed with a bit of WINTER'S BONE, with all of the wild and the revenge and the survival, and a badass teen girl as its protagonist. It's a harrowing, disturbing, and yet deeply h...

    This book is absolutely RIVETING. Brutal, human, hopeful, and completely unique. I kept on thinking that this was the spiritual heir to SARAH BISHOP, a comparison I don't make lightly. This book is going to stay with me for a long time. I'm still gathering all my feeling about it, but ...

    I've already mentioned in my review of Notes from My Captivity how this is a more sadder and depressing story, which is kind of to be expected considering the MC lost everything and had to survive while being badly injured in the wilderness alone with a dog while only having revenge on...

    This book cover caught my eye enough to read the summary. Reading the summary enticed me enough to read the book and I?m so happy I did. Hatchet by Gary Paulsen is one of my favorite books, so I thought this would be along the same lines only with a girl instead of a boy. I Am Still ...

    I almost finished this book, it wasn't a bad book. It just happened to have my trigger in it and when I realized what was going to happen - I peeked at the end and realized there was no way in hell I'd be ok with finishing it. I'm still counting the book as read since I read the majori...
