Battling lawlessness, bizarre weather patterns, and the hardships of everyday living, a young woman struggles to keep body and soul together in the aftermath of a nuclear bombing in the exciting post-apocalyptic young adult novel, The World We Make (Evergreen Series: Book 6) by Matthew Cox. Harper Cody was seventeen when a nuclear bomb struck near her hometown of Evergreen. After witnessing the murder of her parents, Harper determines that absolutely nothing or no one will ever hurt her younger sister, Madison. As a champion marksman, Harper becomes part of Evergreen's militia, even though she hates the idea of killing humans. In this new world, men extort food and supplies from honest, hardworking people, think nothing of harming children, and steal and kill without discretion. Can Harper come to grips with killing in order to protect and survive? Or will she and her new family become victims of a turbulent dystopian society?

The World We Make (Evergreen Series: Book 6) by Matthew Cox is a thrilling young adult novel with a post-apocalyptic theme. Containing an action-packed plot, engaging characters, and a dramatic storyline, the book is captivating from the very first page until the last. Following the difficulties of day-to-day living, the story realistically captures the after-effects of a nuclear war. Even though her world has been shattered into pieces, Harper displays outstanding courage and strength as she confronts hardships and death. I loved following the day-to-day hazards and hardships that Harper experienced. Complete with action-packed scenes filled with blood and guts, this dramatic post-apocalyptic novel promises to thrill and entertain fans of dystopian stories from the ages of twelve to a hundred and one. Splendid!
