A Young Adult adventure story set in the Australian outback
The world we know has changed.Imagine a world where everything you grew up with is gone. No television, no internet, no shopping centres and no adults. When a catastrophic virus kills everyone above the age of seventeen, life on earth suddenly becomes a battle for survival.
As the virus hits Australia, two sisters, Lexi and Hadley, find themselves alone and vulnerable. With the increasing threat, they no longer feel safe in their home and must flee the city in search of a safe place to live. Seeking sanctuary, the girls head to the small town of Jasper’s Bay, in the Western Australian countryside. They soon discover that the quiet looking town, is not as peaceful as it first seemed. The girls are abruptly thrown into a bitter conflict, leading to mistrust, betrayal and murder.
In a world without adults and without rules, they must decide who they can trust before it's too late.
How long could you survive in a world without adults? Who could you turn to? Who could you trust?
I loved this novel, I liked the way it was written and it had me hooked. The plot flowed smoothly and I enjoyed how the story kept me interested. I particularly liked the characters, especially the sisters and Lexi and how she took charge of the situation. I also enjoyed the little hints of humor. Very enjoyable!”
I enjoyed the fact that this story was set in Australia. I liked the characters and enjoyed seeing them face difficult situations. It made me wonder how I would react in the same situation. I liked the fact that there were no adults left in the world and the teenagers had to work out how to survive on their own. I think this would be very difficult for most people today. It was an interesting story and kept me entertained until the end.
