One of our Books of the Year 2013  An emotional roller coaster, Survive will sweep readers along in its gripping story of teen survival. Jane’s plan is to die. Coming out of the institution which has been caring for her following an ‘episode’, Jane is on a last flight home. Having successfully proved that her ‘recovery’ is sufficient to allow her to return home, she’s got everything planned.
