I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It was short and a fast read, but it held my attention the whole time. I was concerned for Zoe, and like her, I alternated between liking Dooby and hating him. I think in the end I wanted her to end up going with him, but I think it was for the best that Munchkin was with her.

The story itself is a frightening look at one potential future in which the polar caps melt and land is covered by water. It's amazing how quickly humans revert to savages in the wake of mass disaster such as in this book. It is a great addition to my dystopia/post-apocalyptic shelf in my classroom.
