Week 16 Review: The Other Life

From Goodreads:
3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world 

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers. 

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers. 

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all?

My Review:
Living in a bunker for 3 years with only the same 6 to 5 other people would drive someone partially crazy when there's really nothing to do. And when they run out of food, well, they're going to have to do something, because they'll starve, so Sherry and her dad venture out of their bunker, they're unprepared for what awaits them.

LA has been bombed, and there are creatures called Weepers, after the fake tears that come from their eyes, and hardly any survivors, and they don't meet any, until her dad is taken to be food, and Sherry is rescued by Joshua.

Joshua's had a hard time, living in a public bunker for a year and a half, having his mom beaten to death over the poor treatment of her daughter, his sister, and then later, having his sister taken by the Weepers, and eventually turned into one. So he hunts them, and yeah. He's the avenger, as he had Tyler tattoo into his shoulder.

The action was nonstop, and the characters, even when they thought there were safe, weren't, and bits and pieces into the rabies virus and how it was started and some effects, are laced throughout the book, told in stories, seen, and discovered. Which lead to the ending being hopeful, but a bit sad.

This was a really great book, so I hope you guys check it out!
