The Last Orphans by N.W.Harris [SBM Review]

The Last Orphans

One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world. 

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas--an out-of-his-league classmate--who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected--the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won t stop until every person in the world is dead. 

This was such a wonderful action packed adventure. All the adults have died and now a small group of teenagers have to find out what happens while protecting younger children. This was a great apocalyptic read perfect for teenager readers. The story grabbed my attention right from the start and kept my attention throughout. It was nail biting and kept me on the edge of my seat. In a time of crisis you find out who people really are and I am so glad we get to follow this group. They are all scared and confused, but do what they have to do to keep each other alive and safe. I can't wait to continue the journey and find out where Harris takes us next.
