This was fantastic. Lauren James is a sci fi queen, and knows exactly how to throw a curve-ball halfway through a novel and make it work brilliantly. I also loved just how diverse this was (casual diversity in genre specific fiction is what I Live for). ( )

Overall I enjoyed this and I thought the concept was super interesting but for some reason, the story never really grabbed me and I was never really into it. ( )

Like this better than her other books in that I finished it. She does waffle on in places and I think the editors need to really crack down on this if she is aiming for a teenage market, as James will lose them if she gets too preachy. That being said, the story itself is quite good.

Plot: Lowrie ( who thinks she is gay) and Shen are the youngest people left on Earth after a virus wiped out mankind's ability to procreate 300 years ago. They were created from the last IVF embryos.
They live with much older people who are their "parents" in a small community of about 200 people living in the decaying remains of London in 2109. Their world is run by AI "bots" who do all the work that people used to do, and its an idyllic life where they go cave diving in London's underground rail system that has flooded due to global warming and are tutored by the older generation in all manner of things including first aid and survival.

The action starts when a helicopter crashes and a very old Life saving Bot called Mitch saves them from the fiery debris. Mitch who communicates with lights, starts hanging around Lowrie to protect her. The two then discover that the crash was caused by a terrible virus that is making all the older generation have seizures and then fall into a coma.

The long and the short of it is there is a hidden secret and the 2 humans must travel to Wales to try and break into a hidden vault on Mount Snowden that contains everything that was put inside when the virus first came - think seed bank, medicine, parts for computers, etc etc.

Throughout the book, Lowrie starts to feel funny about Shen and then realises she is falling in love with him and isn't gay at all. Surprise, surprise!

A few unexpected twists and turns in the plot that I DID see coming and some that I didn't. I think the students will love it though. ( )
