Liked book 1, not as much book 2, or the start of book 3, but after the arena fights, it got good!

I've read book 1 and I'm halfway through book 2. The first few pages seemed to be yet another superficial, shallowly written modern novel with no depth, character development, or substance. It was the lure of the disaster and dystopian society that kept me going. But that notion only lasted a few pages and *very* quickly the story got rolling and before I knew it, I'd finished book 1! I'm devouring book 2.

The character development is excellent. Even though the main characters are a gaggle of tee

Apocalyptic with a twist!

Engrossing trip into a familiar place plucked out and put into the unknown. Very imaginative with its storyline. Shows how quickly things can go badly when an evil person puts themselves in power and uses fear to intimidate and control others into following along.
Good use of young characters and showing they believe strongly and are more willing to act - on both sides! Enjoyed and look forward to the next book.

If you are a teen then this one is for you

If you are a teen the. This one is for you. You may like it you probably won't...not nearly as good as hunger games or something of that nature

This is one of those books I could not put down. Some people found themselves in an alternate reality. Some teenagers did a great job in the new location and some were not so great. The ending was a surprise.

The story opens on a rite of passage known to generations of redblooded American males: the summer roadtrip. Theo and his friends are off to Atlantic City with nothing more on their minds than a well deserved getaway filled with sand and surf. Oh, and girls. Definitely girls. Enter Kylee and her friends, also headed for the Jersey Shore. With thoughts of summer flings dancing in their heads, the boys and girls soon find themselves pairing off as they travel together.

Everything is going great at

Shelves: young-adult
The story is fast-paced and thankfully Shernoff wastes no time allowing the characters to be thrust into their impossible situation before developing them, and it’s interesting to see how they initially adapt to their circumstances, given their age. To some extent we don’t really need to know what they were like before The Event (as the incident is referred to) as they now have a clean slate and just need to concentrate on survival but as in most disaster situations, not everyone makes the best ...more

When we first meet Theo, he is undecided and unsatisfied with his life. He has stopped enjoying going along with the flow and was looking for purpose. Strangely enough, Theo begins to find his purpose after the weird earthquake thing happens that leaves him and other survivors on an island. As devastated as everyone is by the displacement, they find themselves continuing with life under the guidance of the Mayor Sam Lucas and the Deputy Mayor Tiberius. It begins to follow a pattern of what I wou ...more

I love a good book!! And (spoiler) there are NO ZOMBIES in this book! LOL. I get so tired of reading about zombies even though I love them. This was a good book from start to finish. I wondered a little at the beginning about whether this was going to be a teen romance or something mild like that, but it turned out to be pretty exciting. The young people grew into amazing responsible young men and women. The book was pleasantly exciting...not the kind of exciting you have when battling zombies.. ...more

This is an intriguing book and concept, quite well executed, and a gripping YA-SF adventure story. It starts off ordinarily enough with a group of American teenagers, but their situation becomes increasingly tense following the Event. The central characters are well and sympathetically drawn, with the possible exception of the enemy in chief - but I suspect that there may be good reason for this. The story development does not quite mesh perfectly with the characters, but I still had to know wha ...more

Oh dear, if I wrote a story, this is probably how it would read ....... which is why I'm not an author.

I can say one positive thing, unlike a lot of books where a calamity is key to the story, in this one you didn't have to wait long for it to happen.

yep, I'm done

Sci-fi? Sheesh

Not very realistic. Young boys overthrowing a government on another planet? Not supposed to be a sci fi as far as I knew. Boring people too.
