"Those interested in the psychological landscape will appreciate the moments of kindness from strangers, the sympathetic portraits of people who fit best in the margins, and the overall optimistic vision of human nature." -- Horn Book "With clipped prose of intimate detail and keen insight, Jahn-Clough crafts an authentically adolescent first-person narrative. . . . With tight pacing, motley characters, and touches of the spiritual, this is a furious, illuminating adventure." -- Booklist "The plotting and the exploration of a teen's suddenly being stripped of everything she owns and everyone she loves will elicit interest." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
All dead. No one survived. All dead. This morbid chant haunts seventeen-year-old Blue as she trudges through the countryside with just the clothes on her back, heading to her childhood home on the ocean. Something absolutely awful has happened, she knows it, but she doesn't know what. She can't even remember her name, so she calls herself Blue. This gripping survival story -- peppered with flashbacks to bittersweet times with her boyfriend, Jake -- strips life down to its bare bones. Blue learns, with the help of a seemingly magical stray dog and kind people along the road, that the important thing is to live.
