Lost and losing hope, they struggle against the elements, and each other. With their familiar pecking order no longer in place, a new order emerges, filled with power struggles, betrayals, secrets and lies. Emily must explain why she's the last left alive.
But can she carry the burden of the past?
Discover the gripping novel that explores who we are when no one is watching, and how far we'll go in order to survive.
Emily is the sole survivor of a plane crash. Now recovering in hospital her counselor suggests she writes down her story to work through her feelings of survivor guilt.
The story is narrated by Emily so right from the start I’m wary but she is a convincing narrator telling the horror of the crash and how her and a few classmates managed to survive the initial crash into a river and pull themselves out of the rushing waters.
What follows is a gripping story of survival in the Amazon jungle. Personalities clash as school rivalries come to the fore. Friendships are made and broken whilst crushing secrets are revealed.
We follow the teens as they have moments of hope and moments of despair. The strong become weak and the weak become strong.
We see flashbacks of Emily’s life as the narration alternates between her life before the crash, her time in the jungle and now, recovering in hospital.
The story was totally engrossing and I felt the teens time in the jungle was very realistic.
The story reminded me of The Life of Pi as in it was an account by a sole survivor. They can tell ‘their’ story the way they want it to be.
The ending was outstanding. I didn’t see that coming!
A recommended read.
