It was just okay. ( )

A very interesting and realistic read. This story is reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, but for teenagers. Father and son are surviving in a post-apocalyptic, post-plague world by scavenging and avoiding slavers. When Stephen's dad is injured Stephen has to learn to live in a community and depend on others, other then his family. ( )

I thought the writing started really strong but I didn't end up loving the book as a whole as much as I thought I was going to. Great read for boys! (And girls--just not chick flickish at all)! ( )

Book description
The wars that followed The Collapse nearly destroyed civilization. Now, twenty years later, the world is faced with a choice—rebuild what was or make something new.

Stephen Quinn, a quiet and dutiful fifteen-year-old scavenger, travels Post-Collapse America with his Dad and stern ex-Marine Grandfather. They travel light. They keep to themselves. Nothing ever changes. But when his Grandfather passes suddenly and Stephen and his Dad decide to risk it all to save the lives of two strangers, Stephen's life is turned upside down. With his father terribly injured, Stephen is left alone to make his own choices for the first time.

Stephen’s choices lead him to Settler's Landing, a lost slice of the Pre-Collapse world where he encounters a seemingly benign world of barbecues, baseball games and days spent in a one-room schoolhouse. Distrustful of such tranquility, Stephen quickly falls in with Jenny Tan, the beautiful town outcast. As his relationship with Jenny grows it brings him into violent conflict with the leaders of Settler's Landing who are determined to remake the world they grew up in, no matter what the cost.
