What would happen if Yellowstone erupted?
This novel very well-researched from little details such as the texture of ash to bigger things like the eruption radius of a volcano. As a mother, AJ’s journey to find her son after the eruption is heartwarming and emotional. There is no limit for what a mother would do for her kids. The story opens readers’ minds to better understand what autism is like, even from the point of view of a child who has autism.
The story was well-written, detailed, heart wrenching, and I definitely recommend it.
My rating: 5 stars
Living is more than mere survival.
Young widow AJ Sinclair has persevered through much heartache. Has she met her match when the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, leaving her separated from her youngest son and her brother? Tens of thousands are dead or missing in a swath of massive destruction. She and her nine-year-old autistic son, Will, embark on a risky road trip from Maine to the epicenter to find her family. She can’t lose another loved one.
Along the way, they meet Reid Gregory, who travels his own road to perdition looking for his sister. Drawn together by AJ’s fear of driving and Reid’s military and local expertise, their journey to Colorado is fraught with the chaotic aftermath of the eruption. AJ’s anxiety and faith in humanity are put to the test as she heals her past, accepts her family’s present, and embraces uncertainty as Will and Reid show her a world she had almost forgotten.
