Abstract:

When Skye Rodgers and her brother Red move to Manhattan's gilded Upper East Side, terrifying rumours of a global apocalypse are building. But even this does not stop the young elite of New York from partying without a care in the world. Initially an outsider, Skye finds herself joining an exclusive clique at school, known as the Secret Runners, only to discover that the clique has found a portal that can transport them into the future. The revelation is horrifying: the rumours are true and the apocalypse is coming. The pressure is on for Skye and Red to work out how to make use of their knowledge and survive the inevitable destruction of the world as they know it . . . The epic, filmic, fast-paced narrative depicts a polarised society where the gap between rich and poor becomes painfully clear when it comes to a race for survival.
