I had my eye on this book for a long time before I found it at a book sale, but let me tell you, I really had NO idea what it was about. This became very clear to me the moment they reported the death of _____________ somewhere around page 2. (Trying to avoid spoilers here.) Honestly, finding out this was a crumbling-world, global-epidemic type of story made it a LOT more interesting to me. I mean, I knew about the illness from the book's back blurb, but I didn't think the book would focus on it so much.

I think Kasischke handled it well, and managed to still throw some twists into the story of Jiselle Dorn and her insta-family while giving enough attention to the increasingly horrifying backdrop.

It's a fast read, and an interesting one, and I'd highly recommend it!
