it was amazing
Read from July 23 to 25, 2012

This was another novel I had a hard time putting down. Like The Last Policeman, which I read just before this, this book explores a world on the verge of apocalypse but with much greater depth and poignancy. Narrating from the perspective of a girl coming of age in a time of unprecedented uncertainty, Walker creates believable characters and circumstances that are often riveting. Some have mischaracterized this as Young Adult fiction, but it is very much an adult novel.
