Publisher's Summary

In Emmy Laybourne’s action-packed debut novel, six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world - as they know it - apart.

Nice book

Interesting story, short on the believability, short on action, short on thrill. Safe for younger teens and adults who like to avoid the heavy hitting dystopian thriller.

Great young adult apocalyptic fun read

It is a fun read. A bunch of kids surviving the Apocalypse in a supermarket. Not life changing, but enjoyable and entertaining.

Listening for a second time

Would you consider the audio edition of Monument 14 to be better than the print version?

The first in a 3 book series, had me on my toes the entire time. I really cared about the "kids" in this book. If you like the "Hunger Games" or "Walking Dead" this series might pull you in. I loved all 3 books.

Not Just for Teens

Where does Monument 14 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Excellent. I looked forward to listening each time I exercised.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Monument 14?

Don't want to give it away.

Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

They were all good.

Any additional comments?

Even though the story involves teens and kids, it is interesting enough to be enjoyed by adults. There are some graphic descriptions of wounds and sex so it is not appropriate for kids.
