Project ELE by Rebecca Gober & Courtney Nuckles

Project ELEProject ELE by Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckles

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads synopsis.

Millions have already died, and thousands more are perishing daily. As a last ditch effort to preserve the human race, the government implements Project ELE. With the earth heating at rapid speeds, all remaining survivors are forced to turn to F.E.M.A. shelters to wait out ELE's wrath.

Fifteen-year-old Willow Mosby's life, as she knows it, ends the moment she walks through the shelter's door. Willow has to quickly adapt to the new challenges that shelter life demands, the least of which includes making new friends and working a full time job.

Soon after making an interesting discovery, Willow and her friends start exhibiting strange abilities. Seeking answers, they embark on a mission to find out what these new abilities mean and whether they are a gift or a curse.

This new adventure can send her world crashing down around her. The question is: Can Willow survive the fall?

My review.

I normally read paranormal books, but I was given the chance to read this in exchange for an honest review and since books are my drug (Hi my name is Shona and I AM a book addict)I jumped at the chance. I knew nothing of the plot, but I have heard the phrase ELE (Extinction Level Event) before so had a brief idea of what I might expect. From the first chapter I knew this was a book I could enjoy, by the end of the book I am on the verge of stalking the writers to find out where/when I can get the next instalment.

The book begins with Willow and her family (mother, father and younger brother) hoping they will be granted entry into the shelter that promises to save those not infected with the virus that threatens to wipe out the rest of the world. Before they can be accepted they must undergo some tests. It's at this point that Willow's family falls apart.

Inside the shelter, Willow soon finds herself a small group of friends in Connor, Claire and Alec, and in an effort to stave off the boredom they go exploring the mountain and its tunnels. It's these adventures that lead to Willow discovering all is not what it seems.

Thanks for reading.
