It’s been more than two years since Jon Evans and his family left Pennsylvania, hoping to find a safe place to live, yet Jon remains haunted by the deaths of those he loved. His prowess on a soccer field has guaranteed him a home in a well-protected enclave. But Jon is painfully aware that a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can put his life and the lives of his mother, his sister Miranda, and her husband, Alex, in jeopardy. Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world gone so terribly wrong?
Why I picked it up: It’s the fourth book in a series (Life As We Knew It) and I’d read the other three. I was interested to see how things had changed in the book’s world in four years.
Why I finished it: It’s the fourth book in a series and I’d read the other three. This one wasn’t my favorite book of the series but I had to read to the end. I actually hadn’t known there was going to be a fourth book until I saw it on the New Books shelf.
I’d give it to: Fans of post-apocalyptic dystopian novels.
I’d give it: 3 stars
