Publisher's Summary

"This is a story about love.
"It's also a story about hate, which is why I left New York in the first place. You don't fly halfway across the world to live with a bunch of people you never met, just for a laugh.
"I guess if I'd known where it was all going to lead, I might have thought twice about stepping onto that plane. I might have worried a little more about Edmond being my cousin.
"And me being 15.
"But I didn't. And in the end, those things didn't matter as much as you think they would.
"In the end, the world had bigger things to worry about than us."

Critic Reviews

"This riveting first novel paints a frighteningly realistic picture of a world war breaking out in the 21st century....Like the heroine, readers will emerge from the rubble much shaken, a little wiser and with perhaps a greater sense of humanity." (Publishers Weekly)

Well done

Very convincing characters. I felt like I was right there with them through all the adventures. An interesting take on how war brings out character and hope in people.
