Overview *Contains Spoilers*
One minute Sam is daydreaming about surfing in his lesson, the next his teacher has just vanished into thin air. Along with everyone over the age of 15. Then begins a whirlwind of adventure and emotions as Sam, Astrid, Quinn and everyone within the dome begin to fight for what little resources there are left with no fishermen, farmers or even police to provide food and keep the peace. What doesn’t help is that a select few of the survivors appear to have powers, superhuman powers making it very hard for everyone to get on. Everyone is petrified of turning 15.
This book is amazing! Although it is a fantasy book, it is so realistic; this is most likely because all the characters start off in a setting that is very familiar for the reader: school. This book is scary because it shows a possible forecast of a life without adults and how children, up to the age of 15, would cope without a superior force.
This book is a ticking time bomb as the countdown ticks away the time and the chapters towards the end of the book…
