“Schism” is the first book in a new dystopian trilogy that tells a tale of survival, of good versus evil, and of constructing a future with only memories of childhood.
A government-created virus is accidentally released before testing is complete and within weeks it kills six billion people, children are the only survivors. Andy Christensen and her two friends travel across the country searching for a safe place to live, but nowhere, it seems, is capable of resurrection.
“SCHISM is an engrossing page turner that skillfully deals with dark subject matter in a compelling, through-provoking manner…The writing is crisp and clear, and the novel’s details are well-researched, down to the names of local roads and landmarks and the types of technology used by the survivors.” -IndieReader.com
“This apocalyptic teen drama’s character interactions may draw readers in, but its vigorous story will keep them hooked.” – Kirkus Reviews
Get the Book:
Everyone jokes (some not so jokingly) about being prepared for a zombie apocalypse. What if what we should be worried about is an airborne virus that kills people almost instantly?
The only people that survived this world wide virus outbreak are children, all of the adults have perished. Suddenly children have to worry about how to survive.
Not only did the adults perish but things we take for granted are gone: food, medical, housing, clothes, gas, electricity, security..the list goes on.
Everyone is worried about survival and it’s hard to know who to trust. Andy and her 2 friends meet others along the way and they form their own family.
I was totally engrossed in this story. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. It will be moved to the top of my to be read list when it does.
