This third book in its trilogy is very suspenseful and makes you wonder what you would do if you were in the characters’ situation. Foraging for food, starving, and surrounded by environmental disasters, the characters must try to survive conserving resources and relying on their instincts.
I love this because it was engaging and true-to-life, it will make you want to stock up and prepare for disasters. You’ll appreciate how much you have for creature comforts. Yet, some of the character changes were unbelievable and out of place. My favorite elements were: Characters, Plot, Conflict, Resolution, Literary Devices, Engaging Voice, Original Ideas, and I liked that it was believable and rational. I’d recommend it to all my friends in 6th, 7th and 8th grade.
Since this is a book with a 2010 publishing date, do you want to nominate it for the MSBA list for next year? Yes!
