We love fashion. Come on, who doesn't? But when you're living in a post-apocalyptic world, your outfit choices might be a bit limited. Yet a dystopian YA character's gotta wear something. In Amy Plum's latest YA release, After the End, her heroine winds up on the run from two dangerous factions, in search of her friends and family. Today, Amy shares which outfits Juneau and Miles, the novel's two protagonists, would be seen wearing and why. Take a look:
Juneau grew up in the Alaskan wilderness, living off the land with her father and her clan. She, along with the rest of the clan children, believe that World War III destroyed the world in 1984, and that they must hide from murderous post-apocalyptic brigands to survive. Until one day Juneau's clan disappears, she leaves their territory — and discovers that there was never a WWIII. Outfit details here.
Miles is the son of a Los Angeles pharmaceutical company CEO, the quintessential rich kid, constantly getting into trouble. Forced to drive Juneau on a road trip across the American west, he quickly comes to realize how useless he is outside of his own little world when faced with Juneau's survivalist nature. Outfit detils here.
To escape the two factions out to get her, Juneau chops off her long hair and disguises herself as a boy in order to escape Anchorage by boat. This will be her style throughout much of book one. Outfit details here.
