I could not put this book down because it was so good. I never knew what would happen next. Two teenage girls, Rory and Fee are hiding after a bomb explodes. Rory is blogging what is happening and what led them to this point. It keeps going back between the past in the blog and the present in a way that keeps you at the edge of your seat. This book was intense and brought up important issues from the eyes of a teenage girl.
Some of my favorite parts include Rory discovering Fee’s secrets in the present day while blogging in a shed. I enjoyed the interactions with Paula, a 10 year old girl that ends up hiding with them. Fee is very closed off from her best friend Rory, but she bonded with Paula and was able to focus on something other than what she was dealing with personally.
Thank you Booktrib, NetGalley and ABRAMS for this book in exchange for an honest review.
