For Fin, it's just like any other day - racing for the school bus, bluffing his way through class and trying to remain cool in front of the most sophisticated girl in his universe.

Only it's not like any other day because, on the other side of the world, nuclear missiles are being detonated. When Fin wakes up the next morning, it's dark, bitterly cold and snow is falling. There's no internet, no phone, no TV, no power and no parents.

Nothing Fin's learnt in school could have prepared him for this. With his parents missing and dwindling food and water supplies, Fin and his younger brother, Max, must find a way to survive in a nuclear winter . . . all on their own.

When things are at their most desperate, where can you go for help?

A haunting novel from a brand new Australian voice.

  • Great apocalyptic fiction

    by on

    A great YA post apocalyptic debut with no monsters, no supernatural or unexplainable events or abilities. An exploration of humanity's response to an entirely possible nuclear winter. Imagine coming of age in that!

  • Must Read Fiction

    I read this book before giving it to my 14 year old son. Started at 8pm, was still up at 1am finishing it off! Fantastic read, great plot, really hard to put down. Very thought provoking, hard issues are discussed in a great way. The writer really draws you in with her deftly drawn characters. Love the Blue Mountains/Sydney setting. My teens are also loving it.
