In the After by Demitria Lunetta
Another amazing dystopian novel by a new author!I love having so much time to read great new books by the pool in the summer! Amy was 14 when her world was totally torn apart. An alien race came down to destroy the human race. Luckily Amy was able to survive the initial attack and learned how to avoid the aliens. She was lonely and constantly worried, but she was alive. Her only companion is Baby, a little girl who she found one day when she was out scavenging. Amy and Baby have a nice routine in place that keeps them safe from attacks even though they miss contact with other people. Then, Amy discovers that there are other survivors living in New Hope- a community who are trying to rebuild civilization. While at first Amy is thrilled to find others to live with, she soon discovers that all is not well at New Hope and she must figure out a way to keep both herself and Baby safe. This was a great book- a quick read and of course there will be a follow up book to this one. Of course I will have to wait for a year to read it, but it will be worth the wait.
