The end of the world is only the beginning
From New York to Los Angeles, Chile to Egypt, five teens awake to find their cities eerily deserted. Why have they survived when so many others haven't? What force connects them to one another? Moving north, south, east, and west, they are pulled together to fight the ultimate battle in a war they never knew about—a war that has been raging since the dawn of time.

Tui T. Sutherland & Kari Sutherland are sisters and best friends, and if you can't tell by looking at them which one is older, Tui certainly isn't going to tell you. They grew up in South America, traveling a lot and moving several times (and they're still only about 80 percent certain that their parents weren't secret agents). Kari now lives in New Jersey, while Tui lives in Boston, but they use every excuse they can to see each other (like, say, writing a book together).From School Library Journal:
Grade 7-10–This creepy, futuristic title opens on the lives of five teens from various parts of the world. Through alternating narratives, readers learn that they all have strange powers that affect those around them in various ways. Then they suddenly find themselves among the few humans alive–what has felt like a day to them has been 75 years to the rest of the world. Lured to New York City by mysterious voices inside their heads, they discover why they are the only teens left and what it will mean to the world. Dealing with robotic crystal monsters, genetically altered animals, and old people with no hope, these young people must come to terms with what being an avatar means and how their powers will play out. The end of the world takes on a very different twist from series such as Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins's Left Behind (Tyndale House) or K. A. Applegate's Animorphs (Scholastic). Readers will be drawn to the well-written characters and intrigued by the unexpected, cliff-hanger ending.–June H. Keuhn, Corning East High School, NY
