“Kate Alice Marshall’s I AM STILL ALIVE may be the grand poobah of this season’s young adult thriller category, giving suspense pros like Lois Duncan and Stephen King a run for their (abundant) money. This tense wire of a novel thrums with suspense, but also unexpectedly poignant moments.”

The New York Times

“A taut, gripping page-turner with a strong female hero to root for.”

Starred review!

“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.”

Starred review!

“Marshall builds tension steadily as winter approaches and Jess plots her revenge. The diary format and Marshall’s immersive descriptions will hook readers into this exhilarating survival story.”

Publishers Weekly

“Readers who enjoy postapocalyptic books will be rewarded if they try this more realistic novel. VERDICT: A gripping tale of endurance and discovery of inner strength. A strong purchase.”

School Library Journal

“If Hatchet was your favorite book in grade school, but you wish it was filled with much more girl power, then I AM STILL ALIVE is the book you’ve been waiting for.”


“Terrifying and gorgeous, it’s definitely one of 2018’s must-reads.”

Paste Magazine

“Marshall’s thrilling tale is also a deeply moving story about coming to terms with imperfections (both in oneself and in others) and about finding true resourcefulness and inner strength.”

A BookPage Teen Top Pick, August 2018!

“A gripping adventure…”

The Wall Street Journal

“An assured debut…With no love interest or male authority figure coming to save the day, I AM STILL ALIVE is a refreshing feminist survival story with a distinctly cinematic feel.”

Entertainment Weekly

“This is a compelling survival story mystery that will have you flipping through the pages until you finish.”


“I couldn’t set this book down—the words actually made me shiver. The desperate, forsaken circumstances snare the reader from the very first page and never subside, even when hope finally appears to seep in. It’s Hatchet meets The Revenant, infused with fierce, undaunted girl power.”

—S. A. Bodeen,
author of The Raft

“An expertly conceived plot plus a true heroine (and her dog) make for an original, engrossing, and twisty survival story that I tore through compulsively. You won’t regret the hours that disappear when you read this one.”

—Nancy Werlin,
National Book Award honoree and New York Times bestselling author
