STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Solid Pandemic Tale Meets Young Adult
🧡 This sweet, poignant take on the pandemic-apocalypse genre has the coming-of-age YA feel of Susan Beth Pfeffer’s Last Survivors series or Karen Thompson Walker’s Age of Miracles. Told from the perspective of high schooler Lilliana, it has the distinctive perspective of a teenage girl, but also some serious trauma in the backstory as well as the plot. However, it remains a younger story, so avoid it if that's not for you. Having said that, at the time of writing it’s free on Audible Plus. If you have that option, give it a go.
💚 This is a pandemic scenario written pre-Covid, which makes it an interesting point of comparison. I think it’s relatively accurate in many ways.
💜 Listen to this if pandemic/social-aspect apocalyptic is your thing. Or if you like YA fiction. It works on both counts. What I would say is that it doesn’t delve deep enough into any of the subjects it explores. It has the incomplete feel of the beginning of a series, but, to my knowledge, is not part of one.
