“I have no idea what is truth and what is fiction. I’m all I’ve got now. I can’t trust anyone.”

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she’s trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

I’m really intrigued by After the End, and I’m curious to know who it is who’s looking for Juneau.




  1. I’m curious about this one too, mainly because I’m wondering why they would live as if the world were diestroyed when it wasn’t. Kind of a different premise. I like the cover a lot too.

  2. I am really excited for this one! It sounds a little like Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Running Out of Time. It is certainly on my TBR list! Thanks for sharing ~Megan

    • I’m jealous! I have so many books I need to read this month that I wouldn’t have time to get to it anyway though. 🙂

  4. Wow, this one sounds really interesting and quite different to what I thought it was about! It sounds dystopian, but not. And the cover is gorgeous – it gives such an eerie feeling with the colours of the sky! Hope you get to read this one soon 🙂
