Staff Reviews


I loved this book from the first page to the last. More than a hundred years earlier, the last generation of humans grew old and died. Only a handful of them remain. Among them adolescent Griz and Brant, the thief who stole Griz's dog, Jess. Griz intends to get Jess back. Griz and his dog Jip begin a harrowing chase through a world almost entirely reclaimed by nature. It is a story of survival and wonder that will enthrall lovers of STATION ELEVEN and THE WORLD WITHOUT US. Don't miss this!

Fantastic. Insightful. A water tight-plot and a delicate balance of dark and light. I could never have guessed the ending (and I pride myself on guessing book endings). My new favorite post-apocalypse book.

Description


"This unputdownable story has everything--a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs."--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
When a beloved family dog is stolen, her owner sets out on a life-changing journey through the ruins of our world to bring her back in this fiercely compelling tale of survival, courage, and hope. Perfect for readers of Station Eleven and The Girl With All the Gifts.
My name's Griz. My childhood wasn't like yours. I've never had friends, and in my whole life I've not met enough people to play a game of football.
My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, but we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other, and our dogs.
Then the thief came.
There may be no law left except what you make of it. But if you steal my dog, you can at least expect me to come after you.
Because if we aren't loyal to the things we love, what's the point?
