Kids on their island banded together to survive. The disease vector hit each child as they passed into adolescence, killing them as well. Just when things were starting to work under kid rule, the illness that killed the adults mutated and young children became ill.
With each turn of the screw, Abby struggles to hold her family together and survive. An intriguing take on what might be. Be forewarned. This story will stick with you long after it's done!
