Life through the eyes of 18 year old Stevie Marie Jackson is adventerous, dramatic, beautiful, and tragic. She and her younger brother Garrett are left alone in the woods after their family's encounter with a herd of walkers. Their parents stayed back and tried to hold off the walkers, but failed in doing so, and have turned into the infected, only to be killed by the two young Jacksons themselves. They ran into a group of survivors in Atlanta and were accepted immediately once the group saw the state they were in. Stevie got close to everyone quickly, but got closer more to some than others. Her eyes were set on the redneck archer Daryl Dixon. Every time she tries to get her mind off of him, he seems to float back into her memory. He was much more than a fantasy boy to her; he seemed to be the love of her life. There is one question that's needed to be answered throughout the story: who will survive?
