Synopsis

Monsters aren’t real. Everyone knows that. When a sudden earthquake strands Celia’s parents out of town, she finds herself on her own in a shaken city. She tries to reach out to other kids around her apartment building. Some of them, like the sad boy named Demetri, seem wary of letting her too close. The others call themselves Hunters. They claim the earthquake was caused by monsters only kids can see. And they think Celia is destined to save the city. Celia doesn’t feel destined to save anything—but for the first time, she feels like maybe she’s seeing things as they really are….

Review

Little Apocalypse is a dark, creepy atmospheric read.

We start with Celia, who’s home alone in the city when an earthquake happens. We get the post-apocalyptic experience, scenery, and survival vibes; Since Celia has no way to contact her parents, and she’s left to fend for herself. Curiosity leads her to meet some kids who might know what caused the earthquake, and the world she finds herself in is one she could never have imagined. That mystery is the hook, and you need to buckle up for the ride!

Little Apocalypse was a magical adventure. The magic system is unique with the monsters called Littles and Bigs. We have spellbooks, curses, protection spells, bindings, which we learn bits and pieces about as we progress through this action-packed story.

The characters are unique, vivid, and real—lots of development for them all in such a short time frame. Celia battles with the want to fit in, the struggles of making friends, and finding herself betrayed, torn between two sides. Can things ever get back to normal? I loved the waxing and waning—even the dynamics between this new life and her old life. The tell of family and friends.

Overall this was an exceptional middle grade that I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend to kids and adults alike.

Best,

Ashley
