About this ebook

In the ruins of civilization, a young girl's kindness and capacity for love will either save humanity -- or wipe it out in this USA Today bestselling thriller Joss Whedon calls "heartfelt, remorseless, and painfully human."

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius."

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointed at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.

This book was very gripping that grabbed hold right at the start and never let go until the end. I loved how fast-paced it was and it is very entertaining. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because the ending was very abrupt and not my favorite. Regardless, it's still worth a read.

Great read. Moved along quickly. Nice characters. Not your typical "zombie" story. Even if you are not a fan of that genre, you are sure to enjoy the story.
