Abby, 13, is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple, unaware that bacteria from a passing comet will soon kill off older teens and adults. She 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
This was a free book and a good book but I don’t think I will read the next in the series, which is Colony East, unless it is offered free.
That said, it does was a very good story line, being that only very early teens and younger survive a bacteria spread by the dust of a comet and they have learn how to take care of themselves and well as some toddlers. This group lives on an island and are pretty well off until they encounter some bullies that steal food from them. Two of the bullies die of the bacteria and the other joins their team. Soon they discover that an antidote is being created by some scientists who have been safely underground and were never exposed to the purple dust. Now they have to figure out how to get to a distribution location and who to send. Will they make it and will they run into any trouble? You will just have to read the book, which is still being offered free by Amazon, and find out.
