Publisher's Summary

The end of the world is the weirdest time to come of age.

Welcome to the end of the world. One minute, people are going about their lives, and the next - not. In the wake of the inexplicable purge, only a handful of young misfits remains.

When it all went down, “Wizard of Odd” Dev Brinkman was seeking shelter from the taunts of his classmates. Goth girl Lucy Abernathy had lost her best friend and had no clue where to turn. And Twinkie-loving quarterback “Marcus” Haddad was learning why you never discuss politics and religion in polite company - or online.

As if life when you’re sixteen isn’t confusing enough, throw in the challenges of postapocalyptic subsistence, a case of survivor’s guilt turned up to seven billion, and the small task of rebuilding humankind…

No one said doomsday would be a breeze. But for Dev, Lucy, and Marcus, the greatest hope - and greatest threat - will come when they find each other.

Don’t be fooled by the happy cover

I bought this book because the cover looked like it was going to be s humorous story. I was fooled. So iff you are bummed out this is not the book for you.Be warned that if you don’t like it when everything hoes bad, this is not the book for you. However, the story was very intriguing and I really wanted to find out what happens to the characters.
The narrator was very good and did a great job differentiating the characters voices. Even including a great southern accent.

Great story!

Great book. Leaves you hoping for a sequel. Author seems to push a little left wing agenda inside but it's easy enough to blow off.

Just bad...

This book HAD such great potential! I have an autistic little brother and the author did a great job of describing the character with Autism. Seriously great job. But that's where great ends with this book. The story started off with such potential and I lost interest well before the 1/2 way mark.

Narration: Have you every heard someone with a natural British accent trying to do a Southern accent? It's bad... I couldn't take it!

YA is typically my favorite genre, but this one was a waste of my time. I hope others love it, because I really didn't.

Funny, witty, intelligent, well written.

Loved this book. Really enjoyed the story and narration. Reminded me of Ben Elton. The characters are great, with enough mystery to keep one engaged. Violent in places, but not too stomach churning. What would you do if you were an apocalypse survivor?
