She's earned a scholarship for college and plans to leave after graduation. But when a terrible accident occurs, the compound's belief in end times hits a higher intensity and Becca has to decide what she is willing to sacrifice to have her freedom and her dreams of a future not weighted down by fear.
A well-paced survival story that never really generated much interest in its characters. They are largely two-dimensional, especially Becca's abusive mother. I took Becca's love for her little sister at face value, because I never saw any real evidence of it. And the romance between Becca and Roy largely fell flat. It won't give you much insight into preppers but the setting at least allowed for an entertaining adventure.
