'Utterly addictive' Victoria Selman
'Funny, engrossing, and brilliantly written' Claire McGowan
‘One of the best books we’ve read in a long time’  Bella

Sometimes all it takes to bring a family together is the possible end of the world
 
Meet the Altman family.
 
Fifty-something Dan is struggling to cope with a mid-life career change. MBA-educated wife and mother Jen has dealt with life’s disappointments by becoming a closet alcoholic. Seventeen-year-old Chloe is obsessing about getting into the right university and her state tennis semifinals. Fourteen-year-old Max is trying to figure out when he can next sneak a puff on his beloved vape and plotting revenge on the school bully.
 
They’re a normal family with normal problems.
 
Until, one day, the lights go out.
 
Mobile phones don't work. Lights, laptops, cars, trains – anything that uses electricity – just stops.
 
And what happens next will change everything…

Funny and heart-warming, Lights Out in Lincolnwood is the story of one ordinary family and their unexpected adventure of a lifetime


‘Thrilling, heartfelt, humorous and wonderfully original. Lights Out in Lincolnwood takes a darkly wry look at just what happens when ordinary meets extraordinary. I loved it' Chris Whitaker

‘This is a heartwarming read that we couldn’t put down’ Closer

'A darkly comic and refreshingly unique story' Lisa Hall

“Would suburbanites survive an EMP?”

Thank you to the author, publishers Simon & Schuster and NetGalley UK for access to this as an advance reader’s ebook. This is an honest and voluntary review.

“Apocalypse in Suburbia”

This book was very different to my expectations, being a family drama rather than a horror (although there are horrific elements). The author focuses on the family dynamics of the Altmans, who on the surface seem to... More

“A serious letdown”

Poorly paced, one-note flat characters, and no real sense of cultural commentary. This book wants to be The Leftovers but it's more like if The Simpsons did a parody of that.
