It is science fiction or magic we cannot comprehend as we too like the teens who are left don’t know the cause of the gigantic happening that changed the face of the whole world after eating the whole of mankind except the teens who are not mature enough to handle things on their own.
The adults’ disappearance doesn’t look much devastating at first but when you look at it from a different angle in which the eradication of the adults also mean the eradication of the whole ruling and responsible society of the human race.

There is yet another evil and that is the evil of death that approaches them at the age of fifteen thus this book has total chaos brilliantly described in words and it has given a new dimension to the teenage world a world where the teenagers take the place of their elders without becoming adults. Kyle McCarley’s narration was a bit tough at the start to understand but this was because there was a lot going on in the initial stages of the book but toward the middle, the narration is fine and absorbing.
