#1  in Science Fiction - 57 days so far! Thank you, readers! 

PG-15: [Yes, you read that right. I would recommend teens not read it until they are 16!] Profanity, violence and sexual situations. Warning: There is talk of cutting and suicide. If any of these are triggers for you, please consider that when reading. Take care. Rob 

What if death forgot you? 

In a future that could be ours, Lizzie, a suicidal teen-age girl, barely navigates her own life. Then everything falls apart. In an apocalyptic land nearly deserted by disease, she lacks reasons to live until a shocking turn of events reveals a phone number. Her call pulls her dangerously cross-country to meet a stranger she thought was dead. 

In a world where there is plenty of food, plenty of gas, plenty of space... fear, anger and a lust for power still control the patterns of human life. 

This coming of age, edgy young adult novel is the debut of a former alternative high school teacher.  If you like this, try Toils and Snares, a Deserted Lands novella, sampled on Wattpad.
