We All Looked Up

For Ages: 14 and up
'This generation's The Stand. . . at once troubling, uplifting, scary and heart-wrenching' Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle

Two months to become something bigger than what we'd been, something that would last even after the end. Two months to really live.
