With fierce survivor instincts, Amy manages to stay alive-and even rescues "Baby," a toddler who was left behind. After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope. On the surface, it appears to be a safe haven for survivors.

Professional reviews

"In this dystopian novel listeners are led down the primrose path to the City of New Hope, a seeming Garden of Eden that promises a new future for the survivors of "the floraes." Julia Whelan gives a commanding performance as Amy, the young protagonist who survives the green globs of terror with wit and cunning. It looks like her life has returned to normal--better than normal, even--until she finds herself questioning the principles of her new society. Whelan's vocal arsenal of characters--Amy herself; her mother; the silent toddler, Baby; and even the wily Dr. Reynolds--are all superbly portrayed. Her tempo complements the quick and clever plot, which leaves listeners breathless with anticipation. Listeners who want a heart-thumping ride will find that this audiobook and Julia Whelan deliver.
