In the aftermath of a war, America's landscape has been ravaged and two thirds of the population left dead from influenza. Fifteen-year-old Stephen Quinn and his family were among the few that survived. But when Stephen's grandfather dies and his father falls into a coma, Stephen finds his way to Settler's Landing, a community that seems too good to be true. There he meets strong, defiant, mischievous Jenny and when they play a prank on the town bully's family that goes horribly wrong, they find themselves in the midst of a battle that will change Settler's Landing forever.

This was basically a book about nothing. You can essentially sum up the entire story in 5 minutes and then you wonder why it took the author so long to tell it. I also never really got a sense for the world that they were suppose to be living in nor really understood how Stephen could possibly keep making such bad mistakes without learning from them - also "really? you live on the road fighting for your life each day and you can't fight nor shoot AT ALL????"

It is written as juvenile & listening I can definitely fell that, but I did rather enjoy the story. Some part were very 'young' however I found it plausible. This is the type of sci-fi I can deal with.

Amazing! I was skeptical at first thinking this was just a retelling of McCarthy's "The Road". In many ways it is, but it shows more hope and a more human aftermath of an apocalypse.
