Synopsis from Goodreads: Paige Miller is determined to take her basketball team to the state championship, maybe even beyond. But as March Madness heats up, Paige falls deathly ill. Days later, she wakes up attached to an IV and learns that the whole world has perished. Everyone she loves, and all of her dreams for the future—they’re gone.

But Paige is a warrior, so she pushes through her fear and her grief. And as she gets through each day—scrounging for food, for shelter, for safety—Paige encounters a few more young survivors. Together, they might stand a chance. But as they struggle to endure their new reality, they learn that the apocalypse did not happen by accident. And that there are worse things than being alone

My Review: Loved the concept here but the book felt flat to me. Most of the characters lacked dimension and made it hard to relate to them. There were a few parts of the book that felt disconnected from the rest of the book, as though they had been added later instead of written with the flow of the book. The story itself was really interesting and imaginative but overall it just wasn't for me.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
