Releases June 1st from Scholastic
A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.
Epidemics, floods, droughts–for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her.Um, yes please! This one just seems to have a little bit of everything in it with a survival tale, a romance, and a mystery element surrounding the main protagonist, and I definitely want to know what it is that makes Lucy so special. I will be at the bookstore in June to pick this one up!
