Amy Yamamoto was never exactly the “friendly” sort. Driven to be the best—the prettiest, the most popular and the most envied girl in school—Amy has lost everything she loved and believed in since the end of the world she once knew: her family, her friends and her connection to the people who understood her.

And now, after all of those other losses, she faces the end of the Doomsday Kids’ life at the Mountain Place as they embark on a journey of nearly a thousand miles in the hopes of reaching a survivors’ camp on the Gulf of Mexico. Can they reach it before their supplies run out? Can they avoid the evil bands roaring through deserted towns and cities and reach safety before it’s too late? And most of all, can Amy learn to trust the others enough to reveal her deepest secret? In a world full of death and destruction, is there a place for hope, new life and love?

This is the fourth book in the Doomsday Kids series.

My Review
Amy's Gift by Karyn Langhorne Folan

Once again, that special light that belongs to youth shines through as Karyn Langhorne Folan takes us back to the deadly post-apocalyptic world of the Dooms Day Kids. If I could imagine the world after such a disaster, this would be it. 

Unspeakable tragedies have befallen these kids, but they stay strong, thanks to the support they show each other. Not everyone will survive, but heroes are made and will be remembered by this group in some surprising ways. 

 Amy has walled herself off in her grief over all of her losses. She has always been a warrior, not always well-liked, and has never fully trusted the group, but now is when she needs them most as they begin a trek to a safe haven where other survivors have gone. She has only one wish, to protect the most precious gift she carries. Will the trek prove fruitless at the end or will life finally give these kids a break? What will the security of making it to this compound mean for the group? Is there more heartache ahead? Will they be forced to lose the cohesiveness of their new “family” in a trade for security? 

Congratulations to Karyn Langhorne Folan for another completely spellbinding journey about a group of teens who have learned what is truly important in life as they fight to survive. I received an ARC edition from K Squared Books in exchange for my honest review.
