Od to be true Then Stephen meets strong defiant mischievous Jenny who refuses to accept things as they are And when they play a prank that goes horribly wrong chaos erupts and they find themselves in the midst of a battle that will change Settler’s Landing and their lives forever A fast read that s best suited for younger teens looking for a post apocalyptic world settingThe characters are young and act like it There were several times when I rolled my eyes at their antics because they either didn t or couldn t grasp the situation outside their little community That things were dire and life was hard and playing pranks or acting out weren t going to get you anywhereFor the most part Stephen was a good leading character He s just trying to figure out where he belongs and what he should do after spending almost his entire life listening to his grandfather tell him what to do He s growing into himself and doing the best he can which I get but there s a limit to how much immaturity I can take Like with Jennifer I didn t like Jennifer at all I understand she had a hard life but the way she was written made her bratty and insolentOverall it wasn t great but it was readable and made you think about what you would do if faced with a similar situation I ve read better post apocalyptic books but this works for younger teens since it has less gore

Eleventh Plague, The

In an America devastated by war and plague the only way to survive is to keep movingIn the aftermath of a war America’s landscape has been ravaged and two thirds of the population left dead from a vicious strain of influenza Fifteen year old Stephen uinn and his family were Eleve With a title like The Eleventh Plague one would suspect that an illnessvirus is the biggest most immediate threat that the characters have to face But the actual story is like the aftermath of an insinuated plague involving a fifteen year old boy roaming alongside his father and grandfather as scavengers until some difficult circumstances come to pass So there s a bit of false advertisement in the title because it s about the people living in the aftermath of the plague I decided to give this a read anyway since it s my kind of genreI really wanted to love this book but sadly it wasn t to be Don t get me wrong it s well written in spurts and I finished it in an afternoon but sadly it felt very lacking when juxtaposed to books in its same genre alongside some progressions which I found difficult to believe in the world that was built I loved the audiobook narration by Dan Bittner but it was difficult to maintain interest in some measures when the story shifted from survival to love story to political rises without a lot of depth It seemed like it could ve been developed a bit The story centers on Stephen uinn a boy making his way through civilization with his father and Grandfather His grandfather passes and changes the survival dynamic between Stephen and his father considering their grandfather ruled their actions with an iron fist Stephen s father decides to help two captured civilians but all heck breaks loose leading to his father becoming severely injured and Stephen seeking refuge for the both of them in a civilized colony that seems peaceful but Stephen doesn t trust it Still he tries to integrate himself in the societyThe story somewhat drags its feet after the initial events and there are some actions that Stephen takes that I don t think add up in plausibility to cause the rift that occurs towards the end of the work In some moments I see myself following Stephen in his struggles to fit in with the society but there are other times when I want to throttle him for being so passive and uick to go along with what seem to be very unwise decisions Still there are moments here that are well written but needed fleshing out in order to give it weight I d be willing to see what else Jeff Hirsch writes in the future but unfortunately this didn t uite tug at my heartstrings and interest enough to stick with meOverall score 25
