Publisher's Summary

A story where edge-of-your-seat horror meets post-apocalyptic thriller, perfect for fans of Lois Lowry and The Mazerunner

On Marin's island, sunrise doesn't come every 24 hours - it comes every 28 years. Now the sun is just a sliver of light on the horizon. The weather is turning cold and the shadows are growing long.

Because sunset triggers the tide to roll out hundreds of miles, the islanders are frantically preparing to sail south, where they will wait out the long night.

Marin and her twin brother, Kana, help their anxious parents ready the house for departure. Locks must be taken off doors. Furniture must be arranged. Tables must be set. The rituals are puzzling - bizarre, even - but none of the adults in town will discuss why it has to be done this way.

Just as the ships are about to sail, a teenage boy goes missing - the twins' friend Line. Marin and Kana are the only ones who know the truth about where Line's gone, and the only way to rescue him is by doing it themselves. But night is falling. Their island is changing.

And it may already be too late.

** mild spoilers**

Omg I can't believe the ending what happens!!!!! is there a second book!! Why!! Omg....

Okay so overall it was a good book but I wanted a better ending I wanted to know what happened but it just didn't live up to my expectations... 60% on my percentage scale... But it's still a good book full of suspense

loved it

I actually waited a long time before reading this book but I'm really glad I got around to reading it. great story and the narrator did a good job. my only complaint would be that I need a book 2 lol, I'd love to see how the story would continue once they reach the island.
