really liked it

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It reminded me of James Howard Kunstler's writing. I liked the sequential flow of the plot with the focus on the daily routines to help build momentum. The author also kept me guessing about the ending.

I thought this book was well-written. Imagine what would happen if a major chemical spill happened that resulted in the quarantine of an entire community? What would life be like under such conditions? What if you were just passing through to another destination when you happened to get caught in this disaster and now had to make it your home? We meet Ellen Cauley seven years after the chemical spill trying to cope with this situation. Those who enjoyed Stephen King's Under the Dome or Kunstler's work may also enjoy this story. It isn't a YA story due to the language and.protrayal of drug usage.
