A deadly virus forces Skye to flee her home. A therapist, her first thought is for her “kids”—especially the mistreated Jesse.

She knows nothing about prepping or survival training. She isn’t even sure who to trust.
Dylan Cole? Maybe. If she can figure him out.

The right decision will mean her survival.
The wrong one and she will become the next victim of the virus.
Suitable for adults and young adults.
