Description:

Imagine living in a world where everything you do is controlled. Book 1 in the Dystopia Trilogy In the distant future the United States has been split into two regions separated by a barren wasteland; this is the country of Dystopia. Here the individual is discouraged, freedom is an illusion, food is rationed, and everything you do is tracked by a chip implanted in your arm. This is Dana Ginary's world. At age seventeen, people receive their career assignments chosen for them by a government body. Forced to work at the Waste Management Plant because she was declared too individualistic, Dana finds herself surrounded by death and brutality. Knowing her days are numbered, she looks for a way to leave the plant before she, too, becomes one of its causalities. It is then she meets a man named George and soon finds herself caught up in a cat and mouse game between the resistance and the Dystopian government. Dana finds herself faced with an agonizing choice of whom she will betray and whom she will save: her friend George, her parents, or herself. The eyes are always watching. What other Amazon customers are saying about this dystopian fiction, young adult novel: "I admired the author on her ability to craft out a novel so real as if it is happening right now. Well done!" --Zhu Hsia "An excellent start to this series and I must admit that I read the last two first! I had to read the first one to see what action I had missed previously." --A Navy Vet... VT town TOP 500 REVIEWER "Well developed characters, good pacing and plot. I enjoyed it enough that I am going to read the second novel in the trilogy... " --Albert Bowes "The story is a mind engrosser and makes you read till the last page non-stop. It is highly recommended for the young adults and even adults as it makes a good read for day. As the length is not very long it might keep you a bit jumpy in the most exciting way." --Sukritti Goyal

New York Times Editors' Choice 2017 Forbes Top 10 Best Environment, Climate, and Conservation Book of 2017 As new groundbreaking research suggests that climate change played a major role in the most extreme catastrophes in the planet's history, award-winning science journalist Peter Brannen takes us on a wild ride through the planet's five mass extinctions and, in the process, offers us a glimpse of our increasingly dangerous future Our world has ended five times: it has been broiled, frozen, poison-gassed, smothered, and pelted by asteroids. In The Ends of the World, Peter Brannen dives into deep time, exploring Earth's past dead ends, and in the process, offers us a glimpse of our possible future. Many scientists now believe that the climate shifts of the twenty-first century have analogs in these five extinctions. Using the visible clues these devastations have left behind in the fossil record, The Ends of the World takes us inside "scenes of the crime," from South Africa to the New York Palisades, to tell the story of each extinction. Brannen examines the fossil record -- which is rife with creatures like dragonflies the size of sea gulls and guillotine-mouthed fish -- and introduces us to the researchers on the front lines who, using the forensic tools of modern science, are piecing together what really happened at the crime scenes of the Earth's biggest whodunits. Part road trip, part history, and part cautionary tale, The Ends of the World takes us on a tour of the ways that our planet has clawed itself back from the grave, and casts our future in a completely new light.

Jim Powell was a prepper who hated leaving his family behind during his business trips. To ease his mind, he travelled with a Get Home bag and a Get Home plan. If the worst happened, he would reach his family or die trying. Then the worst does happen. After a coordinated terror attack, Jim finds himself in a terrifying predicament. With thousands of stranded travelers and no law enforcement, the miles between Jim and his family become a brutal gauntlet where the rules of a civilized society no longer apply. But despite obsessing about preparedness, Jim soon finds that training for societal collapse is very different from actually experiencing it. If Jim wants to make it back to his family, he'll need to find the strength to meet this new, harsh world head-on -- even if it means rising to unimaginable levels of violence.

Naomi sees her first corpse in a Colorado Springs grocery store, but it won’t be her last. With devastating speed, a plague sweeps first the city, then the state, then the world, leaving less than 1% of the population to go on. Naomi, a gentle and sheltered housewife, finds herself fighting for survival in a world populated by desperate people, where might-makes-right, and mercy and compassion are in short supply. Fellow survivors Jack, a youth minister from Woodland Park; Grace, a 17-year-old high school student from Limon; and Naomi’s daughter Piper, a student at the University of Northern Colorado, all find themselves searching for a safe path forward…because it’s not just the world that has changed.

The plague that decimates the human race also pushes mankind into evolutionary change. Those who survive are different, profoundly so, in ways they are just beginning to comprehend. As Naomi struggles to protect and reunite what’s left of her family, she must also learn to understand and accept the changes in herself. In this strange new world, her survival, and the survival of those she loves, depends on it.
