It's been sixteen years after a horrible virus took out most of the world's population. Eve is now eighteen and about to graduate from her all-girls school. But what can she do when she discovers the truth about what will happen to her and the other girls after they graduate? She's on the road and on her own for the first time. Can the former goody-two shoes turn her back on her past and survive in the wilderness? Then Eve meets Caleb, a wild boy who is surviving against the odds. But can Caleb win Eve's trust since she has been taught to fear men from a young age? With a ransom being offered for Eve's capture, will she be able to start a new life? Or will she be forced to surrender her new life before it even starts in order to protect her new love?
"Eve" by Anna Carey is an outstanding book. I definitely was not expecting the cliff-hanger of the ending. I loved reading about Eve because she is a strong young girl on her own for the first time, and manages to make it work. I can't wait to read the next book by Anna Carey. Fans of Fever Crumb and Hunger Games will deeply enjoy this fast-paced dystopian society book.
