Waypoint by Deborah Adams and Kimberley Perkins is a fabulous post-apocalyptic adventure story. Three months ago, the world went dark. Society has broken down into chaos and Simon Harper is on the case. A genius with tech and an avid gamer, Simon is trying to find out what caused it but every turn just throws up more questions. At last, he has the answer, the key to restoring light and power but there’s one problem – the only way he can bring it back is with West, his twin brother, and not his favorite person. It’s 500 miles to Waypoint and the brothers will face tests along the way. Two girls, harboring their own secrets, join in and the brothers have to make a decision – do they trust the girls or is it more than their lives are worth? What if the first girl that Simon has ever really liked or cared about turns out to be the enemy? What if Simon and West can't restore power to the world?

Waypoint by Deborah Adams and Kimberley Perkins is an amazing tale of kinship, courage, and trust. At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is a typical YA adventure but it really isn’t. This has suspense from the first word and, trust me, you will never guess what’s coming next – there are so many surprises that you simply won’t put the book down until you’re done. Except, you won't be done because the book ends on a cliffhanger that clearly leads to the next book in the series. The four main characters, Simon, West, Riya, and Alexandria, are all well developed and each chapter swaps points of view between the four characters – a great way of getting to know them better. It’s a descriptive book so you’ll be living the story as you read it; a glimpse into the future if you like, and an intriguing one at that. Amidst the suspense and the tension of a steady plot, there’s enough humor to lighten the story and a little romance to sweeten the deal. Fantastic story and I am really looking forward to reading more.

This book rules! I loved the back-and-forth format of switching between the main characters. This was consistently suspensful! I cant't wait to read the sequel!
