“Maybe it’s true that the people who live through the times that become history’s pivotal points are those least likely to understand them.”

This is the end of the world. Although it's hard to really know that's what's going on. Eva and Nell, two sisters, live in a house that is 10 miles from their nearest neighbor, many more miles from the nearest town. They back up to a national forest, they are homeschooled and rarely leave home. It isn't until their mother dies that they start to leave the house, visiting town once a week.

But as soon as they begin to visit town, they begin to notice things are turning. The power goes on and off, for days at a time, before it just completely shuts off. Soon, the school closes early and their are rumors of sickness and they don't visit town anymore. Slowly, they being to live off the land and try to find a way to survive.

It's an intense story about survival and love and how to keep going. It's about these two sisters and their struggle.
