The Dead and the Gone - Susan Beth Pfeffer This a good book that starts about the same time as Susan Beth Pfeffer other book Life As We Knew It, but from a different view point. Instead of North Eastern PA we are in NYC. We get to see how different it would be, different challenges and advantages.

Now I do have warn you like Susan Beth Pfeffer's other book there is a lot of death in this book, including descriptions of the decaying bodies and bodies eaten by rats.

But it is a good book with an interesting look at how we might survive a massive tragedy.
