Six years after a global pandemic wiped out most of the planetA??s population, the survivors are rebuilding the country, split between self-governing cities, hippie communes and wasteland gangs. In postapocalyptic San Francisco, former pop star Moira has created a new identity to finally escape her pastA??until her domineering father launches a sweeping public search to track her down. Desperate for a fresh start herself, jaded event planner Krista navigates the world on behalf of those too traumatized to go outside, determined to help everyone move onA??even if they donA??t want to. Rob survived the catastrophe with his daughter, Sunny, but lost his wife. When strict government rules threaten to separate parent and child, Rob needs to prove himself worthy in the cityA??s eyes by connecting with people again. Krista, Moira, Rob and Sunny are brought together by circumstance, and their lives begin to twine together. But when reports of another outbreak throw the fragile society into panic, the friends are forced to finally face everything that came beforeA??and everything they still stand to lose. Because sometimes having one person is enough to keep the world going.

"Listeners will be captivated by Emily Woo Zeller's portrayals of four people who are forced together by a pandemic. Zeller navigates a chilling future in which self-governing cities and gangs split what is left of a desolate country. Zeller switches her vocal speed and inflections to give unique voices and physical presence to Krista, Moira, Rob, and his daughter, Sunny, as they fight for survival. Especially noteworthy are Zeller's ability to switch between women, men, and the adolescent girl and her skill at reflecting each character's resilience and determination. This apocalyptic thriller will leave listeners thinking about how one might start over after the end of the world as we know it. J.O. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
