When Alex's parents disappear in the aftermath of tidal waves, he must care for his two younger sisters, even as Manhattan becomes a deadly wasteland, and food and aid dwindle.
With haunting themes of family, faith, personal change, and courage, this powerful novel explores how a young man takes on unimaginable responsibilities.

The highly anticipated follow-up to Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone
The galaxy-spanning conclusion to Amy Rose Capetta's acclaimed sci-fi debut, Entangled.
In the riveting conclusion to Amy Rose Capetta's out-of-this-world sci-fi fantasy, Cadence is in a race against time and space to save her family and friends from the Unmakers, who are tracking the last vestiges of humanity across the galaxy. In the final battle, the universe spins out of control...and Cade alone must face the music.
A rock star on her home planet of Andana, seventeen-year-old Cade now has to use her unique talents to do nothing less than save the human race from the Unmakers. As Cade struggles to stay close to her strong-willed crew and get even closer to Rennik, the ship’s fascinating and frustrating pilot, her life becomes a tangle of love, death, and lyrics. This suspenseful sequel to Entangled is akin to the beloved Firefly series, complete with warring spaceships, warped villains, and a universe-altering conclusion.

The struggle to survive intensifies when Mirandas father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow.
