Overdrive e-book link: Be Not Far From Me
Ashley feels at home in the wilderness. She's not afraid of a little hiking excursion with friends. But when she catches her boyfriend with another girl, she freaks out. Next thing Ashley knows, she has fallen down a ravine, become separated from the group, and worst of all, she's injured and disoriented. Strong characterization set against the harsh backdrop of the Appalachian wilderness, Be Not Far From Me is a wilderness tale on par with gritty reality stories like Hatchet, which can also appeal to fans of dystopian heroine novels like Mockingjay.
