After the End (After the End, #1) by Amy Plum

Genre: YA Dystopian Romance

Publisher: HarperTeen

Release Date: May 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

 "I have no idea what is truth and what is fiction. I'm all I've got now. I can't trust anyone."
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.


“She talks in her sleep. She mentions a couple of writers—Beckett and Neruda—and some other names I don’t recognize, just kind of mumbling like people do in their sleep. She talks about ‘brigands,’ like she’s afraid of them. Then she says something about her dad, and in a tortured voice she moans, ‘Why?’
And she looks so vulnerable—so normal—for a second, despite her tragic haircut, that I actually feel like hugging her.” (Hardback, pg. 102)
