Summary (from Goodreads.com)Collapse )

Why I Read It: It was on my list of "Shiny New Books of 2012" that I wanted to read, and I liked the cover, and The Book Smugglers largely enjoyed it.

REVIEW: no spoilersCollapse )

Final Verdict: I really enjoyed this surprisingly quiet, introspective novel that follows a young girl's journey of personal growth and search for her identity within a bleak and unforgiving viral outbreak. Kaelyn is such a likable character, which is what really kept me glued to the pages and elevated this story for me. The plot itself was fairly tense and kept the pages turning as no one is safe, and it was very nitty gritty and realistic. I'm not completely sold on the epistolary format, but it didn't hinder my enjoyment of the book -- it just made me wonder WHY it was written that way and not another. Either way, I'll definitely be checking out the sequel, The Lives We Lost, which will be published next year.

Cover Commentary: I looove this cover. I love the title font and how you can see the picture all "behind" like, and I like the shade of yellow this book is. It really makes it pop.
