Leaving home for the first time to go to college is tough – but making your way home on foot during an apocalyptic nationwide event might actually be tougher. In this Novella, Brooke is well into her journey from Portland, Oregon to a little coastal town in Northern California and can think of nothing but getting home to her younger sister. Her focus is to ration her food, cover as much ground as possible, protect herself from the environment and remain hidden from people and other mysterious threats in the forest. When she is attacked by a man who is after her supplies, she is forced to make a decision – fight him to the death or risk dying of exposure in the woods. Can she find her way to Westport?
