In a story built around an illness reminiscent of the avian or swine flu Kasischke portrays the United States as a country abandoned and isolated by the global community. Viewed as the root of all evil as it relates to global warming and economic crisis American’s are left to fend for themselves in their greatest hour of need. The picture of depression both physical and emotional the United States has descended into anarchy as the population begins to contaminate to the point of decimation.

Knowing the above to be true, this book is not for the faint of heart. Not particularly graphic by any means it is also not a particularly light or uplifting read. There is very little happiness to be found as Jiselle goes from flight attendant in love to mother of three fighting to keep her family alive.
