THEN THIS HAPPENED  by J.A. Empson

14 years ago, The Event wiped out 99.9% of mankind. “Nobody knows what caused The Event, but people don’t talk about it. The planet got a bit squished or something. “I wasn’t even born then. Also, I lost my memory about five years ago. I don’t know how that happened, but I’m guessing it was connected with me being a ‘kinny’. Apparently there are a few of us, all my age. We change gravity when we get upset. No big deal. “Apart from that, life’s OK. I catch fish, play video games, go out in my kiteboat. I make some people nervous, but I’m harmless. I think. “So I don’t understand why these soldiers are suddenly hunting for me. All I know is, I’m not hanging around to find out. “It’s not easy going on the run when most of the country is rubble or under water. Plus I have to avoid murderous Exiles, packs of savage dogs, nuclear contamination and other fun stuff like that. “I’m travelling with another kinny girl, Edith, who arrived just before the soldiers attacked. Coincidence or what? At least she can control her kinny stuff. I’m hoping she can teach me how, but she reckons my powers are stronger. Much, much stronger…” Amazon reviews “An incredibly gripping read, with plenty of action, raging emotions and shocks.” “This totally unique post-apocalytpic tale was gripping, right from the very first page through to the very last ... While written primarily for teenagers, this book is one of those real gems - a book that appeals to all ages.” “This book is... total brilliance.” “Now a top favorite on my bookshelf of young adult novels. And I own quite a few.” “An astonishing debut.”
