About the event

This harrowing middle grade debut novel-in-verse from a Pushcart  Prize–nominated poet tells the story of a young girl who wakes up one  day to find herself utterly alone in her small Colorado town. When  twelve-year-old Maddie hatches a scheme for a secret sleepover with her  two best friends, she ends up waking up to a nightmare. She’s  alone—left behind in a town that has been mysteriously evacuated and  abandoned. With no one to rely on, no power, and no working  phone lines or internet access, Maddie slowly learns to survive on her  own. Her only companions are a Rottweiler named George and all the books  she can read. After a rough start, Maddie learns to trust her own  ingenuity and invents clever ways to survive in a place that has been  deserted and forgotten. As months pass, she escapes natural  disasters, looters, and wild animals. But Maddie’s most formidable enemy  is the crushing loneliness she faces every day. Can Maddie’s stubborn  will to survive carry her through the most frightening experience of her  life?
