The core of the book was around an earthquake that hit California and our two main characters who had to survive it and reach home. A character based story by a new author for me, Bridget Foley, the author’s talent rested in the way she etched her characters bringing out their emotions as well as the descriptions of the settings.
How both the characters met up and survived the next few days formed the crux of the story. The entire prose had many evocative moments where many issues were dealt with. There were quite a few triggers, though sometimes the flashbacks were confusing, but those were just minor.
Quite a few dark moments the book held, which nearly stopped my heart. Overall an engaging read.

When a devastating earthquake – the Big One – hits Los Angeles, two strangers are brought together by an act of violence and must help each other survive the wrecked city.
Beegie is riding the bus when the quake hits. The teenager was heading back to her unhappy foster home, but then she’s thrown into a broken world. Roads crumble, storefronts shatter and people run wild.
Dessa, a single mom, is enjoying a rare night out when it strikes. Cell towers are down, so without even knowing if her 3-three-year-old daughter is dead or alive, she races to get back across town.
As danger escalates in the chaotic streets, Beegie and Dessa meet by a twist of fate. The two form a fragile partnership, relying on each other in ways they never thought possible, and learn who they really are when there’s only one goal: Just get home.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
