Now Lowrie and Shen face an impossible choice: in the quiet at the end of the world, they must decide what to sacrifice to save the whole human race...

This is a clever, clever book that marks Lauren James as a storyteller of enormous talent." * Geek Dad * "Honestly, I was hooked from the first two pages and I did not want to put this book down." * MamaMummyMum * "This book made me cry, it made me laugh and it made me yell uncontrollably at 1am and I would absolutely do it all over again." * Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them * "[...] a credible, hugely rewarding read." * SFX * "I adored The Quiet at the End of the World and it will be one of the books I'll recommend more often to anyone who cares to listen. It is essential that you read this if you love realistic post-apocalyptic stories." * Parabatai Reviews *
