The Last Girl Guide 

Can a 15-year-old survive the apocalypse alone?

You bet she can!

Because damaged people know how to survive... 

 The first book in the Dark Fairy Tales Series - A Modern Fairy Tale Retelling of Red Riding Hood with a Dark Twist.

 The pox spread quickly, within weeks everyone was dead - everyone except Harper McKenzie.  Barely fifteen, Harper is a true survivor - life made her that way.  An autistic loner, suffering years of abuse at the hands of her alcoholic mother, she seems remarkably undamaged, but can anyone hope to survive a lifetime of isolation without descending into madness?

 Then there are the dogs; they hunt in packs, and nothing living is safe.

 After surviving a savage attack, Harper begins an expedition of hope. Searching for other survivors, she records her journey in a diary. This is her story; Harper Lee McKenzie - The Last Girl Guide. 

"An electrifying, and often touching insight into one girl's struggle to survive in a hostile dystopian world."

"A plague - a girl - a dog and a diary..."

 "An emotional and action filled the post-apocalyptic story with an unforgettable character. You won't want to put it down!"

 "A Post-Apocalyptic 'Diary of Anne Frank', that is both horrifying and life-affirming."

 Fans of Divergent, One Second After, The Road, The Passage, and Alas Babylon should enjoy this roller coaster ride of fear, tenacity and courage, and the unlikely friendship that develops between one girl and her dog.
