This book is about the future, the very near future that is bound to come. Gas and fuel is running out, nearly making the world empty. The food is scarce and what everyone takes for granted is running out. Sage Valley is a town where the people don’t lose hope even though the world is turning upside down for them. Some teens including Gwen, Niki and Tom survive through the disastrous future. Gwen runs away when a fire leaves her homeless. How will she survive? Niki and Tom, survive through the flood and hurricane by making many sacrifices. They live weeks without good food, shelter and heat. Is the world really ending or are we making it end for ourselves? Read this book to find out. I would recommend this book to teens who like to read about science-fiction novels. In this book, Sci- fiction will invade your mind and remind you of near future. Suzanne Weyn has an inspiring touch in this classic book that will make the reader interested throughout the story.
