Narrator Amy McFadden's evocative voice guides listeners through protagonist Jess's harrowing ordeal. McFadden conveys the visceral nature of Jess's quest for survival. She's stranded, hurt, and grieving in the remote Canadian wilderness after the unexpected death of her antiestablishment father, who lives off the grid. While there are few characters for McFadden to portray, her gripping delivery expresses the exhaustion, longing, and pain Jess experiences in a story that has been referred to as a cross between Gary Paulsen's HATCHET and Cheryl Strayed's WILD. Listeners are thrown into Jess's predicament, and sensitive teens may have to pause occasionally to process everything the beleaguered main character goes through in her bid to stay alive.
