After The Pretty Pox


This book got under my skin and wouldn’t leave me alone. It was so different, and yet so familiar. The main character is about the same age as I am, so I could relate to her in that way, and her bravery and persistence shone through so much that I couldn’t help but root for her. All of the characters, except the bad guys of course, were wonderful. So real I could hear them breathing, and feel their desperation. The house was equally vivid for me. I could smell the decay and hear the crunch of glass under my imaginary feet.

I’m not sure why I waited so long to read this book but I so glad I did. It has changed me, at least in the way I look at my own house and surroundings now.

If you like post-apocalyptic stories without a ton of in-your-face death, or even just stories about human survival on a person and psychological scale, you’ll like this one.
