Smallpox epidemics, floods, droughts—for sixteen-year old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, stealing with it everyone she ever loved. Even the landscape of her beloved New York City is ever-shifting and full of hidden dangers. As the weather rages out of control, she survives alone in the wilds of Central Park, hunting and foraging for food and making do with the little she has, while avoiding roving scavengers and thieves. But when an unrelenting pack of vicious hounds begins to hunt her, Lucy is not sure she can continue on her own. Then, suddenly, she is swept to safety by a mysterious boy named Aidan, who helps her escape the hounds and urges her to join a band of survivors. Reluctantly, she finds him after her home is destroyed; however, new dangers await her.

An army of Sweepers terrorizes the camp, carting off innocent people and infecting them with the plague. Lucy and Aidan realize it’s up to them to save their friends, but Lucy doesn’t know the Sweepers have laid a trap for her. There is something special about Lucy, and the Sweepers will stop at nothing to have her in their clutches.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lori | 2/12/2014

    " Another teen dystopia, in this one the world is rocked by massive earthquakes, floods,etc. and the survivors are rocked by a plague that takes 99% of the worlds population. Classic special girl, meets special boy, adventure ensues, and the setup for a sequel. It was good, not great, but will work for those dystopia nuts who need a fix. "

    " I was really excited when my library added this to their collection and for most of the book I was on the edge if my seat. However the ending was not really an ending. Nothing happens. The characters end up he same as they do in the beginning, this book is just a little it of these characters lives and doesn't have a storyline. Nothingness explained or resolved in the end and unless I'm mistaken, this is not going to have a sequel. It was a good read until the last chapter but I still won't be recommending it to anyone. "

    " I found that this book was kind of slow in the beginning....then it got really interesting...then the ending was kind of disappointing! But I still found the book alright. "

    " This was an ok book, i feel like the author chose such a good topic/ base story but could have taken it so much farther and made it that much more interesting. Still a good, fun, easy read. "
