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.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mandy R. Simon
Jane Solis is going home, or at least that is what her doctor and mother believe. She has been staying in a rehabilitation center for almost a year after attempting suicide. She has internalized her real feelings and faked her own recovery. Now, her plan is to board the flight home and off herself midair. Once again, her plans go awry. While in the bathroom attempting to overdose on pills, the flight she is on hits a storm and crashes into the side of a mountain. Only Jane and her seat partner (Paul) survive the plane crash, and they must work together to survive the harsh wilderness and be found alive. Jane's emotional state will grip readers from the start as she narrates her outward actions in a mechanical way, and internally plans her suicide. When Jane survives the plane crash, her guilt and anger become even more complex, and she is forced to work with Paul (an experienced mountain climber) to make it back to civilization alive. The two run into continual obstacles in their journey to be rescued, and squeamish readers may cringe at the description of broken bones, insatiable thirst, and frozen limbs. Fans of survival stories will latch on to this book, and romance fans will enjoy the intimacy and close relationship that develops between Jane and Paul under the harsh conditions. Reviewer: Mandy R. Simon
Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
Jane has spent the better part of the last year recovering in a mental hospital from her "incident." With the approach of the Christmas holidays, however, she has earned a pass home to spend time with her mother. No one suspects that Jane's good behavior has all been an act and as she walks onto her plane bound for New Jersey, she is armed with a lethal dose of pills. When the plane hits some turbulence and everything goes black, she never imagines just how hard she will be willing to fight for the life that, moments before, she was ready to throw away. Together, she and Paul, the handsome boy whose seat was next to hers on the plane and the only other survivor, must find a way to stay alive in the frozen wilderness. Readers will become emotionally captivated from the very first pages of the novel as they are immersed in Jane's world of attempted suicides, depression, careful planning, and finally chaos as her plane crashes and everything that she had imagined goes out the window. Her voice rings true throughout the story and her will to survive and reclaim herself, even as she faces the brink of death, will have every reader unable to put this first novel by Alex Morel, down. This is an absolute must read survival story and a nice deviation from Hatchet as a recommendation for an "alone in the wilderness" selection. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta
Kirkus Reviews
"Here's what you need to know: When I get on that airplane tonight, I will never arrive home." Suicidal teen Jane Solis has worked hard currying favor with the doctors in her treatment program in order to earn the privilege of going home for the holidays. But instead of having a joyful reunion with her mother, Jane intends to imbibe a deadly cocktail of drugs in the plane bathroom and join her father, who killed himself five years ago on Christmas. Then the plane crashes on a remote mountain range, leaving Jane and glib snowboarder Paul the only survivors. The temperatures are well below zero, and food and water are at a premium. They struggle to find shelter and seek rescue, but after Paul is badly wounded and Jane has to go on alone, predictably, she realizes just how much she wants to live. The strongest part of the novel is the poignant section leading up to the plane crash, where Jane's cynical voice shines with dark humor: "She's from a don't-open-presents-until-morning family and we are a blow-your-brains-out-before-morning family, so we don't have a lot in common." But after Jane and Paul team up on the frozen landscape, it quickly degenerates into a trite opposites-attract love story, albeit with some good, gritty outdoor-endurance detail. Compelling start, clichéd end. (Adventure. 12 & up)
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Jane Solis wants to die. Haunted by her father's suicide, and after two failed attempts of her own, she has resolved to end it all on her Christmas flight home from rehab. Before she can follow through with her fatal act, her flight encounters rough weather and crash-lands in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Jane and her seatmate, Paul, are the only survivors. Forced to fight for their lives in the mountains of Montana, the teens confront both their faults and their fears on the harrowing journey back to civilization. Morel weaves a tale focused on what it means to live, not merely survive. Jane and Paul's romantic entanglement is utilized effectively as a counterpoint to the heavy nature of the main conflict. In Jane, teens will find a character worthy of their time.Colleen Banick, Westport Public Schools, CT

    A fast read that hits you in the feels

    I read this book in less then two days. This novel is nothing like anything i have ever read before- it was depressing to read bout this chracter who faced her life with such a struggle that she planned to kill herself on a plane,

    action packed- jane finds her annoying seat partner alive and they face all odds to try to survive, to

    A tad of romance between the characters- unexpected but completly undeniably perfect.

    Tear jerking saddness when tragedy strikes and tears them apart. I didnt think this book was going to make me question my life the way it did, or make me cry out of frustration, fear, and sadness at the story continued.
    I will forever have a spot in my heart for this book.

    Survive by Alex Morel, was a great book. I think that people should read this book because it was amazing and it did not bore me at any time. I was always on the edge of my seat thinking about what’s coming next. I agree with other posts when they say it’s a “must read” because it truly is. It is really suspenseful. The subject of this Novel was an airplane crash that brings people together. A group of people are on an airplane and it crashes in the snow. They are all cold and hungry. They then try to survive with what they have and there are a few tragedies that occur. It is in first person view. I like this point of view because I can see what she is thinking and what she feels and sees but I don’t like this because I don’t know how the other characters are thinking and feeling. My favorite character is Jane because she’s a hard working woman that always looks out for everyone else. I also really like Jane because in tough situations she always figured out what to do. I think that if I was in that situation, I wouldn’t be able to do what she did when helping peter and others because she was always there for them and she is the reason she survived. “Could this be heaven? Hell?” (Morel 253) is my favorite quote because it really shows how Jane survived a huge crash and now knows that she is safe and sound.

           Jane got my attention right away because I have had mental health problems as well, and I am fascinated with reading this type book. I was intrigued at how someone could go from wanting to kill themselves to fighting tooth and nail to survive after a plane crash. I don't know how much has to do with control of when and how, or actually just having that near death experience that kicked her survival instinct in gear. 
           Her relationship and interactions with Paul are all meaningful and escalated because of the situation that they find themselves in. There is no time to be coy, hide things, or to really sort out emotions. They are faced with so many things that could end their life or the others' that they are feeling everything on multiply and then to the extreme. 
          Jane herself is witty and intense. It was definitely a unique experience being inside her head. I first didn't want to like her, but I ended up as she grew and learned to appreciate life. 




    Bottom Line: Survive is an action packed, emotional no holds barred kind of book that I did not look away from.

    Review: Survive

    I had high hopes for this one. It just sounded like it might have an edge and grittiness that other books don't have. It is about a suicidal teen and a plane crash after all. It wasn't all that I hoped for.

    I couldn't decide how to feel about Jane. I was expecting a deeply troubled girl with an extreme emotional state. But, I didn't get that at all. In fact, it seems like she blames her suicidal tendencies on family history. Mental illness like depression might have families links, but suicide does not I believe. Thankfully we skip right over that and find a girl who really has a desire to live. There are so many instances were she could take the easy way out, but she never does. I think it would take an extremely strong desire to live to get through the situation she's put in.

    I think the really strong point of this novel is Paul. He really seems to put Jane through the steps. He pushes her boundaries and makes her see things in a new light. She didn't need therapy, she needed someone like Paul (and maybe a life or death situation). I admired him for that considering he had troubles of his own.

    The actual survival part of this story was not as intense as I had imagined. Jane's does it with little more effort than the show Man vs. Wild. I really doubt that average person can do this. And who survives a plane crash while they are in the bathroom? There were just a few scenarios that I found not very believable.
