I read this companion, after the main novel, ‘A new beginning’, so I don’t know how it reads as a stand-alone. In this diary style novel, Rebecca, the 12-year-old heroine from the main novel describes her journey and emotions around the apocalypse. As Rebecca is only 12 years old, she is not made partial to everything that happens in the main book, but cognisant and clever as she is, she has her own explanation for what she’s experiencing. She writes it down in her diary, uncomplicating everything that happens around her. It’s funny and tear jerking at the same time. A page-turner, which I read from start to finish in one sitting.
