After The End
by Amy Plum
Decades after World War Three left society in ruins, Juneau and her clan live in a part of the Alaskan wilderness that hasn’t been touched by nuclear radiation. But when her clan is taken by brigands, she ventures out of her homeland to find them. To her shock, Juneau learns that what she grew up believing was nothing but a lie. There was no war. Civilization is still going strong. And Juneau must rescue her clan in this alien world.
Juneau is a strong protagonist. She doesn’t let her lack of knowledge about the strange world she was suddenly thrust into get in the way of her task. This book was really a page-turner, and the only downside was the cliffhanger ending.
