Fans of mysteries and author April Henry will love this murder mystery/thriller. This fast paced, action packed book will keep you coming back for more. When Olivia's mother was killed, everyone was sure her missing father was the murderer. This book begins fourteen years later. New evidence now proves Olivia's father was actually murdered on the same day her mother died. That means there's a killer still at large. It's up to Olivia to uncover who that may be. But can she do that before the killer tracks her down first

Do you enjoy post apocalyptic novels? Doomsday prepping? Survival stories? Then you need to read this book right away. On Day 56 of the Blustar Pandemic, sixteen-year-old Nadia’s mother dies, leaving Nadia to fend for herself and her younger brother, Rabbit. Both have been immunized against the virus, but they can’t be protected from what comes next. Their father taught them to “be the cockroach”—to adapt to and survive whatever comes their way. And that’s their mission. The two set out in an old car to reach their Grandfather's compound in West Virginia. They make some new friends along the way...and some enemies. Can they make it to the shelter in time? They know they can wait out the disease there. Unless...there is no one waiting for them....
