Carina: Harlequin. (Off the Grid, Bk. 3). Oct. 2015. 207p. ebk. ISBN 9781459290181. $3.99. POSTAPOCALYPTIC, NEW ADULT, MULTICULTURAL ROMANCE
In the four years post-Flare, the destruction of all technology, civilization is creeping out of the dark and 20-year-old Maggie Seong is leaving home to join the inaugural freshman class at a small college. Accompanying her is Edwin Hernandez, her first unrequited crush since the Flare cut off communication with her online boyfriend Devon. At college, Maggie discovers a devastating truth her first day on campus: Devon didn't die.
VERDICT Maggie's simultaneous naïveté and darkness mirror the civilization rebuilding throughout this series, even as she struggles to balance the two. [Xpress Reviews, 9/18/15.]
