DEBUT: THE OTHER LIFE (Usborne, February 1st, 2012 / Marshall Cavendish, May 1st, 2012)

Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

5 BOOKS FOR THE APOCALYPSE: The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins), Mercy Thompson Series (Patricia Briggs), Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling), Adrian Mole diaries (Sue Townsend), Three Bags Full (Leonie Swann)
