Billed as part thriller, part apocalyptic dystopia, and longlisted for the McIlvanney Prize 2021, Morrison’s new novel focuses on a survivalist community in Northern Scotland as a deadly pandemic takes hold. Inspired by her father's advance planning and her own ingenuity and courage, this is one teenage girl's survival guide for navigating life under a new, even more deadly pandemic, from the confines of a prepper compound. Will she ride out the collapse of everything she knows with her family — and sanity — intact?

About the author: Ewan Morrison is a Scottish author and screenwriter whose books include Swung, Tales from the Mall, Distance, and the Saltire Award-winning Nina X.
