Publisher Synopsis: A Family in Danger
Worldwide disaster strikes early in the new millennium. A chain of cataclysmic volcanic explosions sends a cloud of ash into the atmosphere--three years later, the ash is still falling. Sunlight is as scarce as food, and cities are becoming increasingly violent as people loot and kill in order to maintain their existence. And sixteen-year-old Miles Newell is sure his family is in increasing danger.
Miles knows that the only chance his family has of surviving is to escape their Minneapolis suburban home to their cabin in the woods. As the Newells travel the highways on Mile’s supreme invention, the All Princess, they have high hopes for safety and peace. But as they venture deeper into the rural Minnesota, they begin to realize that it’s not only city folk who have changed for the worse.
In this gripping adventure, a family leave behind all they've ever known to journey into the wilderness and an uncertain future.
