3 Stars for an entertaining action and adventure packed post-apocalyptic drama.
17 Year old Lauren and Aaron find themselves acting as parents to younger teens and kids when their families die during an asteroid shower. Admired the care and effort the teens showed in caring for the others.
Unfortunately both also behave like the immature teens they are: Lauren storming off into the woods (after a baffling argument); Aaron storming off (hormonal angst) in a town of folk gone crazy. These actions have devastating consequences.
This is the 1st time I've read a post-apocalyptic novel where:
1. I wanted to yell "You dimwits!!" at the main characters.
2. A teen picked up enough medical knowledge from TV shows to successfully treat a gun shot wound (character says "I can't believe I'm alive"- my reaction "Neither can I" with a disbelieving chuckle).
3. There's no food/supplies scavenging/storage or planning ahead of any kind by the main characters after they survive the asteroids- they just drift along.... (cue my surprise at their survival).
Book needs proofreading to correct the spelling; grammatical errors and missing words.
