I Am Still Alive Reviews
This was brutal. A modern, grown-up, gritty HATCHET. I loved it.
Thank you Edelweiss for providing me with a free ebook in exchange for an honest review!
3.25/3.5 out of 5 stars
So, when I requested this book, the main element I was excited about was it being a survival story since I had not picked up one of those in a long time, and well, that’s exactly what I got.

Review to come.

I liked this book well enough. I decided to read this book because the premise sounded rather interesting.

I did feel like there was something missing from the story that could have taken it to the next level for me but I am glad that I took a chance and decided to read this one.
I was hooked and tore through this in no time. I was also reminded that I probably would not survive in the wilderness on my own.

If you want to know why I DNF'd it you can read here: (view spoiler)[The girl only has a dog to survive with for months and months. Near the end the dog is badly hurt and she tries to get him help - it's ...more
