Kirkus Review of IN THE AFTER!


 
Here’s my Kirkus Review! (The only thing I cut out was the summary bit at the beginning.)



 
Debut author Lunetta crafts a bang-up, twisty sci-fi adventure/thriller that begs continuation. Plucky, smart, inquisitive Amy’s first-person narration is enjoyably snarky, and this end of the world is original enough to make it a good addition to any collection of post-apocalyptic fiction. Fans will be rabid for In The End, scheduled for summer 2014. (Science fiction. 13 & up)



To authors, Kirkus can be pretty scary...they have a reputation for telling it like it is. I was so happy (and more than a little relieved) when I read this!

  7. Wow, that is one fantastic review! Yay you! Seeing Kirkus use the word "snarky" in it makes me want to check out this book even more. (I shamelessly love snark. What of it?! XD)
