***Misty – #NerdGirlShadow’s  Review***
A deadly disease sweeps across the world, leaving a gritty, dystopian society in its wake. The plague takes out adults, leaving only children, teens and early 20-somethings. The author builds a cringe-worthy world where the human race is slowly being removed from existence. Cities are abandoned, and people are dying and food is no longer available.
The main character, Jess, lives alone. With friends, Ian, Lucie and Molly, she set out to find The Promised Land. The characters begin to quickly evolve as their world devolves, setting the tone for a great coming of age/dystopian story. The author builds a world that will keep you on edge and also sprinkled in a bit of romance and friendship to soften the suspenseful setting.
Gangs activity, rape, drug activity and other crime would probably tip the young adult crowd to the more mature readers, but there is nothing really over the top. The book is intense, to say the least and kept me intrigued from the beginning. I look forward to reading the next installment. The author did a fantastic job of creating an original feel to the ever-popular dystopian genre. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
