Paige expects to wake up to her parents, younger brother, best friend, and a promising future in basketball. What she doesn't expect is for that future to be seized from her, as her loved ones, and every other human on Earth for that matter, have mysteriously perished. This is an exhilarating and unpredictable survival story, realistic with an intriguing sci-fi supplement. There are moments of action, moments of sadness, and moments of banter, all brought to life by Carson's descriptive writing style and genuine characters. I would highly recommend! -Ethan, Youth Advisory Board Member
