A coming-of-age and action-packed story of survival for a young teenager who’s searching for a connection with her wilderness-survival celebrity dad when their plane crashes in the middle of the jungle. We wanted to communicate that rush of falling, using one point perspective and the graphic leaves falling down onto the title. The title is made up of little dots and stars – an important metaphor in the story and tied to the tagline on the cover.
