Happy Doomsday: A Novel (Paperback)David Sosnowski (author)
Paperback 444 Pages
The end of the world is the weirdest time to come of age. Welcome to the end of the world. One minute, people are going about their lives, and the next-not. In the wake of the inexplicable purge, only a handful of young misfits remains. When it all went down, "Wizard of Odd" Dev Brinkman was seeking shelter from the taunts of his classmates. Goth girl Lucy Abernathy had lost her best friend and had no clue where to turn. And Twinkie-loving quarterback "Marcus" Haddad was learning why you never discuss politics and religion in polite company-or online. As if life when you're sixteen isn't confusing enough, throw in the challenges of postapocalyptic subsistence, a case of survivor's guilt turned up to seven billion, and the small task of rebuilding humankind... No one said doomsday would be a breeze. But for Dev, Lucy, and Marcus, the greatest hope-and greatest threat-will come when they find each other.

"Part dystopian survival novel and part coming-of-age journey, the tale weaves back and forth between the three leads as they try to make sense of the catastrophe and create a new normal for themselves...A sharply topical and well-researched apocalypse narrative that shifts among black humor, grisly details, and moments of poignancy." -Kirkus Reviews "Captivating and darkly humorous, this new work by Sosnowski is perfect for fans of The Walking Dead or postapocalyptic survival stories." -Library Journal "Reading David Sosnowski's dazzling new novel is like watching an Olympic gymnast fly through the air, do six impossible things, and stick the landing with a glorious grin. I loved Happy Doomsday!" -Mary Doria Russell, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of The Sparrow
