Abby Leigh is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple, unaware that deadly bacteria from a passing comet will soon kill off older teens and adults.
The lightning-fast epidemic sweeps across the planet when the germs attack the hormones produced during puberty.
On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her - adolescence.

I would definitely recommend this audiobook...as a matter of fact I already have. The narrator does an excellent job of capturing the characters and the emotion of the story. The author does an amazing job of telling the story of a world in which children must take on the roles of the adults in order to survive.
The narrator, Deanna Moffitt, really captures the voices and emotions of the characters. She brings the story to life and made it hard to stop listening.
This was a book that I listened to in two sittings but only because of life responsibilities. I would have continued to listen through the night if not for that pesky thing called work.
I was surprised that I enjoyed this story as much as I did. It is very well written and you find yourself having to listen/read just a little more in hopes of finding out what will happen next.
The story is heartbreaking but at the same time full of hope. As soon as I finished listening to book one I attempted to purchase book 2 and 3 on audio. Unfortunately, they aren't available on audio yet but I grabbed them for my Kindle. I need to know how things end for Scott Cramer's characters.
Definitely. I loved the idea of the purple moon and how it came about and the story is sufficiently fast paced to read again. I also loved the narrators voice.
The way the children banded together.
I haven't listened to any by her before but I definitely will again.
Yes. I think I listened to 4 hours straight one day because it was so good.
A great story and I really enjoyed listening to it. I hope the rest get turned into audio books because I definitely want to listen to them.
I really enjoyed how the narrator used multiple voices for each character.
It was very interesting and told in a manner that middle grade children can also listen.
Loved how she used different voices.
It kept me interested throughout wanting to know more.
Wanted to listen to the next book but there doesn't seem to be an audio for it.
High on my list
When all the children stuck together to help each other survive
This book was very good I hope to get more from the author. I was intrigued to find how the story fell out. Impressive.
