Regular price $16.00

In a world ravaged by the zombie apocalypse, Miranda and her friends are fighting each day for their lives. Living in an abandoned school, they hunt, scavenge, and fight to survive. But while they work each day to physically live, with each loss, with each fight, the mental aspect begins to take its toll. Relationships form and fall apart, death plagues their very doorstep. With each new potential romance comes the added pressure of doing what you must to survive. 

We’ll Be Okay takes the world of the zombie apocalypse and relates life-altering struggles to the issues of everyday teenagers. Even in the most extreme scenarios, people need to find the smallest moments to maintain their humanity.

Wow that's a lot to unpack in a good way

The characters were all very different, and the book was written in a way to show the inner thoughts of each character as you progress in the story. I really love how the book shows how post apocalyptic world's can affect the human mind and the thoughts and emotions of the person. It shows how a bunch of teens have to grow up in a world that has no guarantee of survival and happiness. Each character faxes challenges and must also contribute to their found family while also navigating their own lives and inner demons. I felt the ending was very tense along with the build up and I really enjoyed reading how each character progresses and how they become what they each either feared or hoped to become. Along with that, can not wait for the sequel and see what happens to the remaining characters and where they go from there.
