The novel is described as “Wild meets The Revenant, infused with ferocious girl power. Jess is a teenage every-girl who, after a car crash kills her mother and leaves her injured, is forced to move in with her off-the-grid dad in the Canadian wilderness and adapt to a new way of life. But when certain events leave her stranded, far away from any help, with only her father’s dog for company, she’ll discover she’s stronger than she ever imagined.”

Ben will play the father in the movie, which will be adapted by Lori Evans Taylor.
