The first trade reviews for Kate Alice Marshall‘s debut YA novel I AM STILL ALIVE are in, and we’re seeing stars!
In its starred review, Kirkus called the book “A taut, gripping page-turner with a strong female hero to root for.”
Booklist was more verbose in its starred review, saying: “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.”
We’re thrilled Kate’s story of survival and revenge is starting out with such a bang!
