It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.
Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.
Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again
This is a real and raw book that brings the vital subject of our possible future, that I think is 75% likely to happen. It's time that we start using green energy; the time for oil must come to an end. Suzanne Weyn brings out every detail of what would happen.
- good subject
- real details
- possible articles that bring the real world more closely together to science fiction
- facts that prove the "fiction"
- strong vocab and writing
- well plotted-out plot
- characters weren't that developed (not enough pages to add on to, I guess)
- unlikely ending
- not enough pages to cover all the necessary parts of a good book
- too many characters
