A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "I found this book to be slow and not nearly as captivating as it could have been. Okay read, but didn't really get into it."

Easy read, enjoyable. Little long winded in parts, but I mostly enjoyed the story and the characters were colorful.
Not an all out gruesome fest more a story of family and acceptance

Very good , engaging story who's characters grip you though you never get a ton of detail. Long history of a post-apocalyptic life. Discusses the large issues and struggles with right & wrong/good & evil as all good post-ap stories should do. Little draggy at the end but well worth reading for both YA and Adult Fiction.
