Waiting on Wednesday (#1)

Waiting on Wednesday is an internet meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This weeks pick is The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker  

"Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all."

As a lover of dystopian fiction, this one is definitely on my "to read" list. Unfortunately I can't read it until February 1st next year.  For more information on The Other Life, follow the link.
