The Burn is full of nuclear fallout, roving gangs, anarchy, unreliable plumbing. That's what Terra's father tells her. She has lived her whole life in comfort in a colony at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. She hates it. And she would pay any price to leave. But when Terra finally escapes the colony, she finds out her father is right. She finds a group of survivors that quickly become friends, and every day with them is a race for survival. But then she witnesses and commits unspeakable acts, and she must decide where her loyalty lies: with the colony she despises or The Burn, where every day is filled with nightmares.

My Thoughts
Amazing thought provoking novel that will leave you wanting more.
“The Burn” is an excellent post apoplectic/dystopian novel that is also a bit of a coming of age story. Terra goes on a terrifying journey and along the way learns the value of friendship and that not all things are as they seem. I was captivated from the first page by the descriptive imagery and how well the characters are written. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good post apoplectic/dystopian novel.
