Title: After the End
   Author: Amy Plum
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: May 6th, 2014

     She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

     World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

     At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

     When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

     Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

My Stance:

     Amy Plum creates a world in which reminds me of a different story, Hanna. I know it's a movie and all, but the story is somewhat similar. Okay no, not really. While Hanna is about a girl whose father has isolated her for the sole reason of revenge; Juneau in this case is isolated by a group for what reason is unsure. I like Juneau's story better; there seems to be a better reason for them to keep her isolated. I am confused as to why the didn't tell her the reason, but that's the story.

     The story is great, and while I am looking forward to seeing Juneau. Her journey around the country that she thought was once destroyed. It will be fun to see her reaction to all the new events and what she has been kept from. I wonder if she was trained to fight like Hanna was, however that wouldn't really be as fun, and what would the point of her fighting be. It looks so good, I am on high on high alert though. It seems to good to be true.
