A girl cast into the future, navigating a dystopian wilderness with her friends.



Leona is hiking in the rain, on a school excursion. She would definitely prefer to be somewhere else.  Suddenly, nausea takes hold of her. Then everything turns dark, and a clapping noise tears her world apart.

They awake in the future. In an abandoned land of deserted, overgrown ruins, they have to fight for their lives. 

On her way through the wilderness, Leona discovers the bitter taste of pain, loneliness, and defeat. And when she finally finds other survivors, they are not what she expected.



Genre: Somewhere between Science-Fiction and Adventure, and somewhere between Robinson Crusoe and The Hunger Games.
