One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world. In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas--an out-of-his-league classmate--who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.
Book Review “Runs Good No Reverse” Mike Hershman
Mark Sills, 16, found the car on Craigslist --the ad read RUNS GOOD -NO REVERSE. He buys the car and, along with his pal Fred, decides to fix it up, but he doesn't have much experience. Oh, Mark once oiled the chain on his bike and Fred added a quart of oil to his Dad's car, but that was about it. A car with no reverse soon finds Mark in trouble with his girlfriend, her mom and his school's Vice Principal. He finds some new friends too -- an ex-Marine junkyard owner and an old lady named Agnes. The title describes the car, and also the boys --and a girl named Karen.
