“Hatchet” meets “Lost” in this modern-day adventure tale of one girl’s reawakening

Jane is on a plane on her way home to Montclair, New Jersey, from a mental hospital. She is about to kill herself.

Just before she can swallow a lethal dose of pills, the plane hits turbulence and everything goes black. Jane wakes up amidst piles of wreckage and charred bodies on a snowy mountaintop. There is only one other survivor: a boy named Paul, who inspires Jane to want to fight for her life for the first time.

Jane and Paul scale icy slopes and huddle together for warmth at night, forging an intense emotional bond. But the wilderness is a vast and lethal force, and only one of them will survive.


This sounds like such a very interesting read. I love how these characters have to survive in such a environment. Makes me think of Alive the movie.

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday book this week?

    YES! O_O I love, love, love the sound of this one. It’s sound so dark and gritty and completely original. I just adore the premise (and the cover, too, but that’s a different story). Very, very awesome pick.
