Every 360 days the earth spins counter-clockwise for five days. While this happens, some people sleep and some people fall into a world they never knew existed; a world where they will learn to survive or learn to die.
Seventeen year old Nicky Barrett is one of the fallen. She has woken up in this empty world and has met people from every generation. Some are good and some are pure evil. She will have to try to fit in, though, because, now that she's here, she will never be able to go back home.
The concept of this book/series is definitely unique and interesting enough to warrant a read. Every 360 days, the earth gets too close to the sun and has to spin counter-clockwise for five days to back away from it. The majority of the population sleeps during these five days not even realizing they do so. Then there are the others. The others "fall" into an alternate reality. They wake up in this alternate reality alone and wondering what happened to everyone. This was Nicky's fate.
While she's out looking for survival supplies in her new situation, she meets Marshal. After a life-or-death situation, Marshal decides that Nicky's worth keeping around. Eventually they meet up with more people and decide to confront a bully who's blocking the water supply into the valley. Conflicts ensues, friends turn into enemies, and enemies become allies.
I think a young adult would enjoy reading this story more than I. Not to say that I didn't enjoy it, but it is definitely geared more for a younger audience rather than adults.
