Honey Juniper and her sisters may seem a little weird to their school mates but they are so much more than just weird. They are preppers. They are always prepared for the end of the world as we know it. On a secret compound in Washington wilderness there are group of preppers training to hunt, to fight and to survive in a deadly situation.
But lately something is off. Everyone is having secrets and acting shady. When Honey’s sister Birdie gets involved in a mission which got busted only because of her, shit really hit the fan. And Honey will do anything to protect her sisters.
One thing is for sure I am not prepared for zombie apocalypse or end of the world. But Honey, Birdie and Blue are definitely prepared. This book was totally not what I was expecting.
Three main female characters, they are badass and artistic. Honey is protective and a painter, Birdie is passionate and draws comic and Blue is sensible and does embroidery. I am a sucker for such female characters and I freaking LOVE all of them.
This is my first book by the author and I really like her writing, Though in the start it takes time to get hang of the things because author just plunged you into the world of preppers without any base information.
Halfway in the book you will be able to guess the suspense very easily but the overall plot and the writing is so good that you will still be amazed by the ending. Each chapter reveals something and keeps you hooked for the next. I really like the title of each chapters they are really cool.
It has a subtle love story too but I like the fact that it was not dragged and or added any unnecessary subplot to the book. It happens with the flow and it is genuine and heartfelt.
One more emotion which author has banged on is family ties. Sisters always sticking together, protecting each other and going against anyone and everyone if they cause harm to any of them. In the end family is all what you have.
This book is a great YA Thriller Mystery and one of its kind with the characters and the plot.
