Read in July, 2012

Interesting premise - one day, everyone disappears except for a group of about 40 kids. Somehow (and at some point, my willing suspension of disbelief disappears) they find each other from around the country and settle into one town. The book jacket describes this scenario as whimsical. No. Kids shooting kids, sadistic kids, strange kids, and science that doesn't make sense does not equal whimsical. I don't recommend, but I did finish it, so two stars it is.
