M. Night Shyamalan's The Village meets Michael Grant's Gone series in this riveting new adventure from Amy Plum, internationally bestselling author of the Die For Me series.
Juneau has grown up knowing that she and the rest of the people in her village are some of the only survivors of World War III. But when Juneau returns from a hunting trip one day and discovers that everyone in her village has disappeared, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries in remote Alaska for the very first time, she learns a horrifying truth: There never was a war. Everything was a lie.
Juneau must now make her way in a modern world she never knew existed. But while she’s struggling to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.
Amy Plum’s internationally bestselling Die for Me series was praised by the Romantic Times as “the perfect combo of romance and thrills, with heart-pumping action that will make you jump and love that will make you cry out for joy.” Now, in this striking new departure, Amy has created another vivid mythology filled with thrilling action and engrossing characters.
Amy Plum is the author of Die for Me, a YA series set in Paris. The first three books - Die for Me, Until I Die, and If I Should Die - are international bestsellers, and have been translated into eleven different languages. The fourth book is an eNovella, entitled Die for Her. The first book of Amy’s new series, After the End, was released in May 2014.
Amy grew up in Birmingham, Alabama before venturing further afield to Chicago, Paris, London and New York. An art historian by training, she can be found on most days either daydreaming or writing (or both) in a Parisian café.
