Publisher's Summary

On Day 56 of the pandemic called BluStar, 16-year-old Nadia's mother dies, leaving her responsible for her younger brother, Rabbit. They secretly received antivirus vaccines from their uncle, but most people weren't as lucky. Their deceased father taught them to adapt and survive whatever comes their way.
That's their plan as they trek from Seattle to their grandfather's survivalist compound in West Virginia. Using practical survival techniques, they make their way through a world of death and destruction until they encounter an injured dog; Zack, a street kid from Los Angeles; and other survivors who are seldom what they seem. Illness, infections, fatigue, and meager supplies have become a way of life. Still, it will be worth it once they arrive at the designated place on the map they have memorized. But what if no one is there to meet them?

A great fun read, worth a look for a summer day.

What did you like most about A Matter of Days?

The honesty of the story, there is nothing spectacular about the plot, but Rabbit makes the book.


What other book might you compare A Matter of Days to, and why?

Life as we Knew it - another post-disaster type book with a teen survivor with some balls.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

Anything with Rabbit in, but in particular the scene where they were trying to save the dog.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Perhaps, I did look forward to what was next and it ended too quickly.


Any additional comments?

The narration was good, and I'm looking forward to reading/listening to more from both Amber and Alex.

Good story not so sure about the narrator

I really enjoyed this, nice to have a post apocalyptic story without zombies. I like the characterisation and the protagonists are on the whole believable, though Rabbit is often not a typical 12 year old boy. The thing that let it down for me was the narration and in particular the voice the narrator used for Rabbit. It grated on me the whole way through and at times made me want to scream.
