This book is so intense that it's hard to believe it's for teens rather than adults. I LOVED it! Alternating between the points of view of a homeless teenage girl in a parking garage and an angst-ridden teenage boy stuck at home with his father, this stark story takes place along the west coast during what appears to be an alien invasion. One day giant "pods" appear in the sky. Any human who steps outside immediately disappears. As the days go by, the electricity goes out, the water supply runs low and criminals become the ones in charge. This story of survival will leave you clinging to this slim paperback book, dying to know if the characters you grow to love will live or die.
