Synopsis from Goodreads: In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible―Navigation systems, communications, medical equipment―fail. In Sycamore River, citizens find their lives disrupted as everything they've depended on melts around them, with sometimes fatal results. All they can rely upon is themselves. And this is only the beginning . . .
My Review: I had really high hopes for this one. The premise of the series is fascinating. A world in which all plastic melts? That sounds intense and crazy and also a little like a social commentary on our over reliance and over usage of plastic. Unfortunately, the story just didn’t come together. It was told in multiple viewpoints, which unless done just right can be annoying and cumbersome, as was the case here. Also, I didn’t like any of the characters and found myself getting bored and putting the book down. Overall it just wasn’t what I was hoping for.
