Book Image Not Available
Overview
When Superstorm Nicole hits the eastern seaboard, the Eastern Grid fails, plunging half of the United States into a blackout with no end in sight. There's no power, landlines, or cell phone service. Hospitals, banks, and grocery stores shut down, and chaos rules. Citizens have two choices: leave their homes or fight for what's left. Four families flee Pittsburgh and must band together to survive, but what will happen to a recession-era United States when half of the country doesn't have power?
Description
When Superstorm Nicole hits the eastern seaboard, the Eastern Grid fails, plunging half of the United States into a blackout with no end in sight. There's no power, landlines, or cell phone service. Hospitals, banks, and grocery stores shut down, and chaos rules. Citizens have two choices: leave their homes or fight for what's left. Four families flee Pittsburgh and must band together to survive, but what will happen to a recession-era United States when half of the country doesn't have power? In this thought-provoking dystopian novel, the social and economic implications of a nationwide natural disaster are explored—the consequences for which we are woefully underprepared.
