Narrator Amy Landon puts forth a strong performance in this near-future postapocalyptic story. Paige Miller, a 17-year-old basketball player, wakes up from a six-day flu to find her family and the world as she knew it destroyed. With her dog her only companion, Paige goes on the road to find anyone still alive. Landon keeps the suspense high and the story moving at a rapid pace, even during longer chapters, which are formatted like diary entries. She radiates Paige's tenacity and gives the other characters distinct voices by skillfully varying her pitch. Despite the author's unsuccessful treatment of racism and classism, the relentless action, thrills, and strong lead clearly set up this gripping title for a sequel.
