Global warming is changing the would as we know it here and things are getting bad fast. For years, everyone thought Nairne's father was a bit crazy, leaving the city, buying some land on higher ground. When disasters strike, people are soon forced to leave their homes. Daniel, Zane and Nairne decide to help out by letting a family in need come live with them.
From there, things go from bad to worse for them. I won't say what as that would ruin the story. Let's simply say my desire to ever have a roommate to share my home just went way down after reading this. Now this is not a horror novel but it is dark, realistic and disturbing of human nature.
I really liked how the characters are portrayed. Very unique characteristics to each. There were characters I liked, and some I hated. Rachel Meehan dis a good job drawing them out. Although I did not care for how the book sometimes jumped perspectives. While most of the time, we are with Nairne, sometimes is will randomly jump to her father or their new tenants with no break or warning. It was a bit disconcerting at times.
This book has some interesting points that make you wonder "What if." It makes you think what might happen if the world suddenly took a massive turn for the worse. What makes a person good or bad. Overall, I enjoyed this.
