In the beginning...or is it the end...an expectant mother's water breaks and a child called Z is born. (No names here...only single capital letters for characters.) In a desolate new...or is it old...world, water is flooding the country, and struggle for survival is apparent. A search for food...family members go missing. A search for shelter...more family disappear. Baby Z and mother give each other comfort.
New friends are made...then left behind. The search is on for the missing...to reconnect.
What really happened...we don't know...can only imagine.
It's THE END WE START FROM. Frightening is the strange new world.
Unique narration. Wish I could rate this one 3.5 Stars...bc I'm still not sure.
Thank you NetGalley and Grove Atlantic for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
