Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The world is not tame. Ashley knows this truth deep in her bones, more at home with trees overhead than a roof. So when she goes hiking in the Smokies with her friends for a night of partying, the falling dark and creaking trees are second nature to her. But people are not tame either. And when Ashley catches her boyfriend with another girl, drunken rage sends her running into the night, stopped only by a nasty fall into a ravine. Morning brings the realization that she's alone--and far off trail. Lost in undisturbed forest and with nothing but the clothes on her back, Ashley must figure out how to survive with the red streak of infection creeping up her leg.

    Ashley is more than comfortable in the remote outdoor landscapes near her home in the Smoky Mountains. She's smart, aware, prepared, and completely mindful of the cruel power of nature. But at a drunken campout with friends, she discovers her boyfriend with another girl, and her emotions get the better of her. She bolts from the safety of camp—barefoot, in the middle of the night, without anything but the clothes on her back. When she wakes, she realizes that she is badly injured, far from the path, and utterly lost. What follows is a painful, dangerous, powerful journey back home, wherein she discovers previously untapped reserves of strength and self-preservation. Recalling the advice of a camp counselor she idolized who has gone missing, Ashley slowly makes her way through the brush, struggling against hunger, cold, loneliness, regret, lack of shelter, and a potentially lethal infection on her bare foot. A harrowing and life-affirming journey of transformation from the edgy imaginings of McGinnis (Heroine, 2019). Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
