This book is soooooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s like Hatchet, but for girls! (Except, it is written almost like a poem…. So weird….) This book is perfect for girls! But is not a boys book… (Sorry guys!)

The book is about this girl who has to live by herself for 3 YEARS!!!!! She was left behind, by accident, when a huge crisis happened. With no phones, no electricity, and no human life around for miles!!!! She is on her own is a ghost town… with no chance of survival…

I did not except this book to be that good!!!!!! It was written in the weird new poetry style I hate, but I still got it just to see if it was any good. AND IT WAS!!!! I actually was super interested in the book. There was some violence, mention of animals dying or being killed, mention of a girls period, (that is why it’s NOT a boys book) and mention of almost dying quite a few times.

Over all, I TOTALLY suggest this book! It was super clean, with nothing wrong with it!!!!!! I would say 8 and up, for girls only. And I hope you all have a wonderful, book-filled day!!! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • An AMAZING book for girls!!!!!!!

When twelve-year-old Maddie hatches a scheme for a secret sleepover with her two best friends, she ends up waking up to a nightmare. She’s alone—left behind in a town that has been mysteriously evacuated and abandoned.

With no one to rely on, no power, and no working phone lines or internet access, Maddie slowly learns to survive on her own. Her only companions are a Rottweiler named George and all the books she can read. After a rough start, Maddie learns to trust her own ingenuity and invents clever ways to survive in a place that has been deserted and forgotten.

As months pass, she escapes natural disasters, looters, and wild animals. But Maddie’s most formidable enemy is the crushing loneliness she faces every day. Can Maddie’s stubborn will to survive carry her through the most frightening experience of her life?
