My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to start off by saying that I love post-apocalyptic novels and this one sucked me in from the very beginning. This story follows Dani and Zoe as the world as they know it ends. Pretty much 90% of the world’s population has died from a weird version of the flu. Only the people that have already had the H1N1 virus seemed to have survived.
The girls are separated, trying their best to meet back up. They correspond with email while the internet is still up, keeping each other up to date on the numerous changes in their lives. The people that survived either turned into “crazies” or developed unique developments, super powers if you will, but much more plausible. Both of the girls notice that they are getting these unique abilities and the ones that they get are ones that are so neat.
Dani is in a group of people with Zoe’s brother Jason. She has had a crush on him for her whole life. Zoe is with a group of people that she just met up with, part of a military group. Jake is part of her group; he is a mysterious person who saved her life but won’t let her get to close. Both of their groups were well-established. I loved the distinction of the characters, how everyone was developed and felt like a friend at the end. The romance was great, not too much, not too little. I was hooked from the first page and it was so hard to put it down. The ending was left wide open for the next book. I could not believe who MG turned out to be! This book had it all, mystery, excitement, sorrow, emotion, happiness, and hope. I cannot wait for the next book!
