Do you remember wishing that everybody would just leave you alone? What would you do if that really happened, If the world ended and you are the only one left alive?
The girl at the end of the world is an apocalyptic, survival, thriller written by Richard Levesque. It tells the story of a young teenage girl, Scarlett, who while on a seemingly normal trip to a baseball game with her father and stepmother, witnesses a bizarre and unusual scene. One of the spectators just a couple of rows in front of her dies when his head explodes leaving in its place two white fungi stalks which burst open and shower everyone with spores. Fleeing home, Scarlett arrives to discover that this is not just an isolated incident and that they are in the middle of a world epidemic that is wiping out the human population. In two days it is all over, everybody living close by her house is gone, and Scarlet is left all alone, apparently Immune to whatever disease has wiped out humanity. She decides that her best chance of survival is to head to her family's isolated cabin, where she believes her mother and sister might still be alive. As she sets off on her journey, the young teenager soon discovers that she's not going to have it easy. She is not the only survivor, and those that are left are willing to do whatever they want and whatever it takes to survive, no matter how sick or twisted it might be. Can Scarlet survive all the trials and tribulations that lie in front of her, or is the savage, new world that she finds herself in going to be too much for her?
The girl at the end of the world was recommended to me by my Kindle app. I was really curious about the book after reading the introduction and decided to buy it and I'm really happy that I did. The story is told from the point of view of a young girl, Scarlett, as she witnesses the end of the world as she knows it. We get to see her character develop from a frightened teenage girl as she tries to survive the calamity that has happened. On her journey she meets other survivors, the majority of which seem to have given up their humanity and decency, and are just out to take whatever they can from this new world without rules or laws. Even those in authority cannot be trusted, government or otherwise. Although the main character is a young woman, this is a book written for everyone to share in Scarlett's adventures. It's no weepy, sentimental tale; there is a lot of do darkness tucked away between the covers of the book. If you're a fan of post-apocalyptic stories, The girl at the end of the world is right up your alley. If not, try it anyway. Who knows, you might become a fan too.
