"A fresh angle on apocalyptic fiction. Skye is a fascinating and complex character, and in this premise of a rapidly emptying world, it is essential to have a unique protagonist at the center driving the story forward. Mikeworth’s insight into human nature is visceral, particularly for readers who have struggled with solitude, trauma and loss. Strange Days works to remind readers of their humanity, and humility, and perhaps spark greater appreciation for all that they already have, and all that they take for granted." —SPR

Book description
Skye Cassidy has just celebrated her twenty-first birthday when a deadly flu-like illness begins sweeping across the country. Before long the hospitals are overwhelmed and entire areas have been quarantined. Soon after that, the utilities fail and gas and food become scarce as the sickness reaches epidemic proportions, causing the critical infrastructures to collapse and transportation to grind to a halt.

Skye continues to live while people around her fall victim to the mysterious illness, and struggles to adapt to her increasingly lonely existence. Finally, in desperation, she sets out on a journey, following the faint sound of a faraway voice on the radio.
