Can't Wait Wednesday-Cabin At The End of the World


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 


Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what’s going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: "Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world."

Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. 


OK how good does this one sound? I like the diversity of a girl with her two dads for a change, the end of the world sounding plot...and I hope it is this cover they use rather than the dull boring one I've seen. This book is released on June 26th.

    1. The plots are certainly different so I don't think there is any connection. With the film having zombies I will watch that too though!

  4. So I have been waiting on this one but admit, I've not been fond of the US cover. Now you show me this one and I just may have to try to find the UK version. This one is so much better.

    1. This seems to be the cover that Amazon in the UK is showing so I'm hopeful I'll get this one. You're right, the other cover is poor. Not too long to wait for it now!
