Summary of the Book:

Slater, Kansas is a small town where not much seems to happen.

Stella dreams of being a space engineer. After Stella’s mom dies by suicide and her brother runs off to Red Sun, the local hippie commune, Stella is forced to bring her dreams down to Earth to care for her sister Jill.

Galliard has only ever known life inside Red Sun. There, people accept his tics, his Tourette’s. But when he’s denied Red Sun’s resident artist role he believed he was destined for, he starts to imagine a life beyond the gates of the compound…

The day Stella and Galliard meet, there is something in the air in their small town. Literally. So begins weeks of pink lightning, blood red rain, unexplained storms… And a countdown clock appears mysteriously above the town hall. With time ticking down to some great, unknowable end they’ll each have to make a choice.

If this is really the end of the world, who do they want to be when they face it?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.  I have to say this way a very interesting book. The setting reminds me of most small towns. The two main characters are wonderful and I love them. They are very real and makes the story easy to read. There is some much I want to say about this book but I think those that read this book need to experience it themselves. It did give me all kinds of good feels and that is a very good thing. This was a very wonderful read.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
