Fantastic story. Well written. This was my read while commuting book, and the story stayed with me all day and even on the weekends. It was difficult to not cheat and read it at other times.
It looks like the second book is available here, while the third and fourth are only available at Amazon. It is not clear if the Amazon versions have DRM, there is no DRM at Smashwords. This is a series I would purchase, but I don't get any ebooks unless the DRM status is clear.
This goes in my read again pile (calibre tag), maybe next time I will find the others available without DRM.
Overall this a well thought out universe, with real characters behaving according to their personality. We do not know what the cause of the event was, and that is reasonable, in the manor it is presented.
There are two points that I wondered about, that are not explored in book one.
1. There must have been some girls in the world who where pregnant at the event. What happened in those cases?
2. Diesel engines with mechanical fuel pumps do not need electricity to run. The same 'science' that allows a revolver to fire, would all allow a diesel engine to run. Surely there are farms with diesel trackers and girls that know how to make them run. How does that alter their experience?

Nice, a book about human society. The author chose a society consisting of only girls from 7-17. It's all there, horror, extreme tension, the good against the evil, it is comparable to animal farm form George Orwell.
Even though there is no scientific background at all (it simply happened that all men and all adults disappeared suddenly), I do apply my habit to not award ratings for SF - it's too difficult to apply justice to all authors. But it is a page-turner so download this one!
