Publisher's Summary

Her fight begins the day the world ends.
Scarlett Fisher is an average California teenager. She likes hanging out with her friends and talking on the phone. She does all right at school, and she's made the best of her parents' divorce. But in one way, she's special: on her 15th birthday, a fast-moving plague wipes out everyone she's ever known, yet somehow it passes her by.
Her family dead, alone in a corpse-strewn metropolis, she has no choice but to survive. She needs food, shelter, a safe place to sleep. She discovers that an ordinary girl is capable of extraordinary things, and that she's more resilient than she imagined. Even so, she wishes more than anything that she could just find another survivor.
Unfortunately for Scarlett, not everyone who survived the plague is looking for companionship. And she's about to find out just how difficult survival really is.

Not your typical PA novel

While this is more of a YA PA novel (and is not a zombie apocalypse story), I really enjoyed listening to it. It was very different from what you usually read where you have two characters... either one completely prepped for the aftermath or one who can't do anything ever. It seemed to me to be what REAL people would do in a lot of the cases and I didn't ever have a sense of "oh, come on" to some fantastical feat taken by the main character. Just a normal teenage girl who tells her story.

MAYBE YOUR THE COCKROACH

BURNT SULFUR
Not sure if it was the writer or the narrator, but the whiney beginning was over the top. First of all if Scarlet is the main character, acting as if she is going to die in the first hour is ridiculous. We know she is the main character and we know that there are hours left in the book, so pretending she is going to die is almost insulting. No zombies in this book, people go crazy and then their faces blow up fairly quickly. I actually thought the whole spore thing with stalks coming out of the face was a cool idea, would like to see that in a more adult version. There are lots of good young adult books out there, but this is not one of them. Frankly Scarlet, I just don't give a ____.

Absolutely brilliant. An end of the world book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl at the End of the World to be better than the print version?

I've not read the print version but the narration was outstanding. The narrator seemed to really get into the story and the portrayal,of loneliness on the part of Scarlett was exceptional. Very good!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl at the End of the World?

I kind of mentally split the book into 2 and the first half where Scarlett is learning to cope with loss and her new normality was my favourite. Not to say that I didn't enjoy the way it dropped her into meeting other survivors and starting a new life. It's s great book.

Have you listened to any of LC Kane’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but it's an outstanding performance. I was very impressed by the narrator who portrayed Scarlett and the world within the story in an engaging, entertaining and stand out way!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Being different is lonely. And being special when the world collapses is just damn hard.

Any additional comments?
