Product description


“A gripping story of survival and self-discovery, Nowhere Wild is a contemporary adventure novel that reads like a classic.” (National Book Award Finalist Deb Caletti, author of Stay)

Product Description

A dark and riveting survival story set against a rugged northern landscape . . .

Izzy is just thirteen when a flu pandemic turns the world upside down. After her sister is attacked by a roving gang of looters in what remains of their town, Izzy flees to the wilderness with a man who claims he will protect her.

Sixteen-year-old Jake is stranded and alone in the unforgiving northern Manitoba backcountry. His mother and grandfather have died and his father has gone missing while searching for help. Desperate to find a way home, Jake begins a trek over some of the most forbidding landscape in the country.

Both Jake and Izzy are forced to make decisions and take on responsibilities they could never have imagined. They must draw on every shred of resourcefulness and courage as they try to save themselves and, ultimately, each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! July 20 2016
By SEG - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent, almost dystopian story about a flu pandemic that leaves very few survivors and even fewer resources and a 13 year old's story of her own survival. Izzy is dependent on her own wit and instincts after her sister is attacked and an adult has proved not to be trustworthy. She meets a 16 year old who is stranded and unaware of the new events in the world. He sets off to find out more and meets Izzy and the two of them together must become responsible for each other while trying to find a sensible world again. The author's descriptions of the landscape and wilderness becomes a character in itself, from the lush summers rich with wildlife to the brutal winters and cold frigid lakes. I would not limit this book to YA readers, adults will enjoy it just as much!

Enjoyed it a lot. It kept me engaged through out. It left me feeling that it was written by someone that really knew what the outdoor survival experience would involve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, good, but not for the faint of heart. June 7 2016
By John Rogers ClarkIV - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Thirteen is confusing enough when you're living in relatively stable times. Imagine how crazy and scary your life becomes when you have to watch your parents die along with most of your neighbors from a flu pandemic, then lose your older sister when she's killed after months of daily survival under horrific conditions. This is how Izzy's thirteenth year has been. Now, she must rely on a somewhat scary older neighbor who is leading her into the wilderness to escape the predatory bands of scavengers who are all that remain of civilization. It isn't long before she discovers that he's just as evil and scary as the people they're running from.
Further north in the back country of Manitoba, sixteen year old Jake just watched his grandfather die. Months ago, his mom died shortly after his dad took a canoe across the remote lake in hopes of finding help to save her life. He never returned. Now Jake, unaware of the influenza outbreak in the more civilized areas south of him, realizes his only chance at survival is to try to navigate/hike back to civilization.
When Jake and Izzy meet, it's the beginning of a risky and frightening race to find safety befor their pursuer.
This is a gritty, no punches pulled YA read and certainly not for the faint at heart. It's a really good story for teens and adults who like an adventure story with dystopian threads.
