AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Luke is having a rough year. His parents split up. Then his mum moves to Phoenix, a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, and she drags Luke along with her.

'But Phoenix is no ordinary town. It was built from the ground up by the enigmatic Shackleton Co-operative less than a year ago. There are no cars, no phone lines, and a private security force instead of police.

'Luke thinks this is as weird as it gets.

'Then he and his new friends discover that someone in Phoenix is plotting to wipe out the human race. And the clock is already ticking.

'There are one hundred days until the end of the world. (From the publisher's website.)
