Summary

The oceans stopped working before Willo was born, so the world of ice and snow is all he's ever known. He lives with his family deep in the wilderness, far from the government's controlling grasp. Willo's survival skills are put to the test when he arrives home one day to find his family gone. It could be the government; it could be scavengers - all Willo knows is he has to find life and his family. It is a journey that will take him into the city he's always avoided, with a girl who needs his help more than he knows.

Personal Review

This book was exceptionally intersting and intriguing. I loved how the Author started the book with a mysterious murder that left an old man dead in his rocking chair with the television on. This is one of the few books I have ever read and I would strongly advise those to read it. Its very detailed and kept me on my heels. I give this book 5 stars on my amazing scale.
