Jesheckah | 8 comments A book where there is a young girl who has a book about survival she lends out to a friend and gets in trouble. Her dad is a professor and they live in a walled compound of some kind. One day he doesn’t come back and it comes out there is a war or some other scenario.

The rest of the book is her trying to survive and eventually meeting up with others who she helps along.

I know this is pretty vague but all I remember other than this was there was a type of nut flour mentioned in the book.

Rainbowheart | 16939 comments When did you read it?

Did it take place in the future, or was it more of a fantasy setting?

Kinda reminds me of Defiance, but I don't think that's post-apocalyptic.


Jesheckah | 8 comments I read it about 20 years ago. I don’t remember if it took place in the future, but the setting was earth.


Nachelle | 146 comments This sounds like "Parable of the Sower" by Octavia Butler. They do talk about acorn flour.


Jesheckah | 8 comments It is indeed parable of the sower! Thanks!
