~ 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…
