Editorial Reviews


“Beautiful and so wildly engaging.” (Lena Dunham)

“Brave and poetic. Aspen Matis is one of the few genetic writers.” (Ben Folds, frontman of Ben Folds Five)

“A lovely tribute to the healing power of wilderness.” (Nicholas Kristof, winner of the Pulitzer Prize)

“This is a very brave book―because there is an open wound in Girl in the Woods, and it never really closes. It becomes a new organ―of doubt, questioning―that remakes both the body and the mind.” (Greil Marcus, Rolling Stone rock critic and New York Times bestselling author)

“Aspen Matis reveals wisdoms that are gems―bright and inspiring. This book will astonish you.” (Shelly Oria, author of New York 1, Tel Aviv 0)

“Soulful, heartfelt, and transcendent. Girl in the Woods teaches us that writing is a way to heal, empower ourselves, and turn our worst experiences into beautiful art.” (Kenan Trebincevic, author of The Bosnia List)

Mercy. I love this story. (Cheryl Strayed, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wild)

“Girl in the Woods is a breathtaking, gorgeous and profoundly wise book. I cried my way through it. Every young woman, old woman, man and boy should read it.” (Bonnie Nadzam, author of Lamb, winner of the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize)

“A mesmerizing journey from tragedy to triumph. Aspen shows us how any girl―even the once lost and disempowered―can transform herself and become the director of her own life.” (Caity Lotz, actress, award-winning AMC show Mad Men)

“Told with exceptional beauty and extraordinary confidence. Matis is a once-in-a-generation talent.” (Bryan Hurt, author of Everyone Wants to Be an Ambassador to France)
