About the Book
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.
