What if the world ended overnight and everyone died but you? How would you cope? What would you do to take care of yourself when there is very little food left in your cupboard and no clean water coming out of your faucet? And you have a little dog who must eat and drink, too?
This is what happens to Mindy Lane, the heroine of But the Children Survived. One day, her grammy goes to the grocery store and never returns. Her parents are on vacation a thousand miles away, but the phone doesn't work and there is no way to communicate with them. Mindy doesn't know everyone in North America had died following the release of a biological weapon. She just knows she's running out of food and must decide what she'll do next.
One night, frightened by the prospect of strangers finding her alone, she hides with her grammy's little dog, Baby Girl, under a ramp attached to the mobile home she's occupying. She watches two men in hazmat suits go into her house and overhears them say they are looking for a child. As she huddles with Baby Girl under the ramp, her fear of discovery grows.
