Space germs wipe out virtually everyone who has passed through puberty.
Abby Leigh is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple. For months, astronomers have been predicting that Earth will pass through the tail of a comet. They say that people will see colorful sunsets and, best of all, a purple moon.
But nobody has predicted the lightning-fast epidemic that sweeps across the planet on the night of the purple moon. The comet brings space dust with it that contains germs that attack human hormones. Older teens and adults die within hours of exposure.
On a small island off the coast of Maine, Abby must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her — adolescence.
At first, I was dismayed to see that this book was written with such sparse details. However, after I really started getting into it, I realized that the sparse details were in direct correlation to the stark cold world in which these teens now found themselves. Therefore, it leant more credence to the story.
The characters were well thought out and weren’t over the top. I really loved the various ways in which they each interacted. You could really picture a bunch of teens being thrown into this situation and acting like these did.
The plot was well thought out and very much original. I really hope to see more of this author’s work in the future!
