Jemma has spent her life scavenging tools and supplies for her tribe in the their small enclave outside what used to be a big city. Now she’s a teen, and old enough to become a Mama. Making babies is how her people survive—in Jemma’s world, life ends at age seventeen.

Survival has eclipsed love ever since the Parents died of a mysterious plague. But Jemma’s connection to a boy named Apple is stronger than her duty as a Mama. Forced to leave, Jemma and Apple are joined in exile by a mysterious boy who claims to know what is causing them to die. The world is crumbling around them, and their time is running out. Is this truly the End?

About Jeff:
Jeff Sweat has made a living from words his entire career, starting out as an award-winning tech journalist for InformationWeek magazine and moving into marketing.

He led the content marketing team for Yahoo and pioneered its use of social media. He directed PR for two of the top advertising agencies in the country, Deutsch LA and 72andSunny. He now runs his own Los Angeles–based PR and marketing agency, Mister Sweat.

He grew up in Idaho as the middle of eight children—seven boys and one girl—and attended Columbia University in New York. Jeff lives in a big blue house in Los Angeles with his wife Sunny and their three kids, two cats, and a racing greyhound.

He loves to travel and writes everywhere he goes, even when there’s not a desk. He likes karaoke, motorcycles and carpentry. He was once shot in the head with a nail gun, which was not a big of a deal as it sounds. But it still hurt like crazy.

My Review

When I first got the book I saw the first few pages I thought wow this book is so well put together with descriptions of each of the groups you would encounter as you read. I thought that was a cool way to start off a story. With the introductions of Jemma and Apple well being how young they were it brought me back to my youth. The descriptions of the place for example Holly Wood and how each region was broken up was a really interesting set up. I found it sad though in how their lives were set and how they never really had a chance to grow up. As for the disease in how it affected families was really sad and the lost of Zee.

This book was one book I recommend you read. I don’t know why it made me think of Lord of the Flies but it did for some reason.  I really think young readers will enjoy this book.    Please add Mayfly to your summer reading list.
