I look around me, and I see nothing that resembles the place I once lived…that world is now gone.”

   ~ My World is Over: Day Zero, When It All Went Dark

For eighth grader Brynn O’Neill, the technology-fueled world she had grown accustomed to, had suddenly come to a screeching halt. Not from plague, pestilence, or even the alien attack her younger brother—whiz kid Seamus—had warned her about.

Civilization as they knew it had now become…

…a world without power.

With lines of communication now severed, and their parents missing since the outage, the O’Neill children face a difficult decision—wait at home—or go on a mission to find them.

With the aid of two brothers, Peter and Colby, the misfit group of young adults set out to find Brynn’s parents. From redneck hillbillies to power-hungry thugs, the road is a long and dangerous one—filled with those who desire to harm them—

an often terrifying path where Brynn and the others will learn the hard truths about life, love, and friendship…

“Penned with a masterful understanding of detailed storylines and the subtle nuances of credible dialogue, author Bridget Hoolihan Budig delivers a uniquely blended tale of youthful adventure and adult circumstance,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Likened to the graphic, post-apocalyptic style found in Suzanne Collins’ exceptional work, The Hunger Games, My World is Over: Day Zero, When It All Went Dark registers high marks in the Young Adult genre.”

Author Bridget Budig is a graduate of The University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s Degree in English Education. Based on her own strong family ties, the O’Neill family found in My World is Over: Day Zero, When It All Went Dark very much resembles her own—with herself as the middle child. Ms. Budig currently resides with her husband, Tim, and their five-year-old beagle, Jem, not far from where she grew up. When not teaching or writing, she enjoys reading, skiing, and digital scrapbooking
