Waking up in a strange and scary new world isn’t necessarily the worst thing, especially when you are grateful to wake up at all. When Nevaeh opened her eyes to find no hospital bed, IV drips, or cancer riddling her body she counted her blessings and sang for joy – happy to face the deadly jungle, killer robots, and (if she’s honest, perhaps the most disheartening) disgruntled companions. They say smiling is the best medicine, but does it still work after death?
This episode focuses on another girl, Nevaeh.
The characters are adapting to the life in the wilderness but, because the wildlife is so different from what they’re used to, it is harder to know which plants are safe to eat.
The reader also gets to know the past of Nevaeh. I really like it that the authors take time to write about each of the character’s pasts. It gives depth to each of them and makes it a lot easier to understand some of their actions.
The character development in each episode is outstanding and I can’t wait to read the next episode.
Rating: 4 stars
