Staff Reviews


Ever read a book that blows your expectations out of the water? BE NOT FAR FROM ME is one of those books. This fast-paced YA survival story follows Ashley, a poor girl whose running speed and survival skills rival the best. When she catches her boyfriend cheating on her at a drunken party in the Smoky Mountains, she does what she does best: she runs off... and tumbles down a ravine. Come morning, she's alone, off the trail, foot broken—and the only person who can save her is herself. Unputdownable is not a word to be used lightly here. McGinnis crafts a survival story that sinks you into Ashley's head and leaves you rooting for her, cheering and dreading the next page in equal turns. An unflinching must-read.

“While on a camping trip, Ashley, upon startling her boyfriend having sex with his ex, rushes away into the woods. Luckily for her, she has experience in the woods and training in survival. Unluckily, she has run off without her pack or even her shoes. The rest of the book is the narrative of her survival. The terse and tense prose lends itself well to the story. An amazing addition to YA survival novels.”
