Can society survive the end of the world? Seventeen year old Lara is about to find out.
Seventeen year old Londoner Lara moves with her writer father to Wisconsin for a year. Wisconsin is not the destination she would have chosen – especially as Freedom, Wisconsin is in the middle of nowhere and under threat of being cut off from civilisation by a massive snow storm. Her tour guide around Freedom is Ethan Walker, whose family farm she and her father are staying on.
Lara is on her way to the farm with Ethan and his sister Katrin when the three get stuck in the snow storm and have to wait it out. Luckily, the Walkers are used to this weather and there are always emergency provisions in the truck. When they manage to get out, they walk back to town to find most of the population camped out at the snowed in town hall. To make matters worse, not only do the snow ploughs not come from the nearest town, there are explosions and an emergency broadcast on the radio – the President announces nuclear war has destroyed most of the country and people are on their own.
The town begins to disintegrate and Lara has to find a way to survive this new world.
