You are autistic, you are a teenager, and you are alone in a post-apocalyptic world plagued by ferocious, man-eating dogs. - What would you do?
Human extinction is inevitable - there is no going back. The pox spread quickly, within weeks everyone was dead - everyone except Harper McKenzie. Barely 15, Harper is an orphan, but a true survivor - life made her that way. An autistic loner, suffering years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her alcoholic mother, Harper seems remarkably undamaged, but can anyone hope to survive a lifetime of isolation without descending into madness?
Then there are the dogs; they hunt in packs, and nothing living is safe.
After surviving a savage attack, Harper begins an expedition of hope. Searching for other survivors, she records her journey in a diary. The diary of an apocalypse survivor - because damaged people know how to survive. This is her story; Harper Lee McKenzie - The Last Girl Guide.
