“Somehow being me wasn’t cutting it anymore in the real world, and I got better at trying to make myself as invisible as possible so that I wouldn’t have to feel the sting of rejection”
The plot follows Zach, a teenage gamer who is shopping at a gaming store in a mall in Saskatchewan, when the biggest storm in the history of the province hits. He and the other mall goers are trapped for the night while they wait for the storm to pass. Zach rises as a leader within the group, helping the security guards protect the group as the storm escalates, putting them all in danger.
The story is told in first person from the perspective of Zach. It was a quick read, the entire story plays out in less than 24 hours.
This story was not what I expected. I went into this book thinking it was a story about an awkward teenager and his relationship with a girl, and it is, but that is not the main plot. It was less of a YA romance, and more of an adventure survival story.
