In a future that could be ours, Lizzie, a suicidal teen-age girl, barely navigates her own life. Then everything falls apart. In an apocalyptic land nearly deserted by disease, she lacks reasons to live until a shocking turn of events reveals a phone number. Her call pulls her dangerously cross-country to meet a stranger she thought was dead.
In a world where there is plenty of food, plenty of gas, plenty of space… fear, anger and a lust for power still control the patterns of human life. As the apocalypse heads into dystopian territory, Lizzie must decide who are her friends, her family and who is a danger to them.
This realistic coming of age, young adult novel is the debut of a former alternative high school teacher.
