Ashes The cover is creepy and the story is creepier but the creepiest thing is that there is a certain truth to the story- this scenario could happen! Young Alex is a girl with nothing to lose because she has lost it all - her parents, her sense of smell, memories and soon her life. A brain tumor is slowly gnawing away at all she holds dear so she decides to take a timeout hiking in the wilds. She meets an older gentleman and his obnoxious granddaughter hiking. An event happens and everything goes bad- except in Alex's head. Now comes the non-stop action of evading the changed (anyone over a certain age but under the elderly) finding food, shelter and answers. This is a fast paced thrill ride that will appeal not only to teens but adults as well. Think Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" . No real ending so I know there will be more to come and I will be the first one in line!
