The last girl
By Michael Adams

“The end of the world happened quickly. The sun still shone, there was no explosion – just a tsunami-sized wave of human thought drowning the world in telepathic noise as everyone’s inner-most secrets became audible. Everyone’s thoughts, that is, except sixteen-year-old Danby.”
I think the idea of knowing what everyone else is thinking is so scary. Do we really want to know what our family, friends, colleagues or strangers are thinking about? In Adams book the result is insanity and violence and a very dangerous place and time to be living.
While Danby can hear the thoughts of everyone else no-one can hear hers. It is her only protection as she tries to rescue her brother and make her way through the different dangers to safety.
I am going to have to read this to find out if she succeeds. I may need to hurry especially as book 2 The last shot is out now.
