AFTER THE END
Plum is an amazing author. Her books are so diverse, each one better than the last. The first half of this unusual book is so different from the second, yet Plum makes it work. A thrill from the start, seeing the story played out through both narratives gives it that extra something special.
Juneau grew up in a post-apocalyptic world. She has only been to her home limits, and she doesn’t dare venture further. But when her family and friends are taken from her, she must venture into the unknown to rescue them. Then she finds out the truth, that everything she’s known was a complete lie. Miles is a typical spoiled rich kid, until he gets expelled. Now on house arrest with nothing to do, maybe he can finally achieve the impossible: get the attention and approval of his father. The key? A weird and freaky girl, Juneau, the link to his father’s business deal. Now on a journey of his own, Miles will discover himself.
