After the Snow by S.D Crocket

Book Description
The oceans stopped working before Willo was born, so the world of ice and snow is all he's ever known. He lives with his family deep in the wilderness, far from the government's controlling grasp. Willo's survival skills are put to the test when he arrives home one day to find his family gone. It could be the government; it could be scavengers. All Willo knows is he has to find refuge and his family. It is a journey that will take him into the city he's always avoided, with a girl who needs his help more than he knows.
This story is told from the point of view of a survivor, a 15 year old named Willo who lives with his family high in the mountains in the unforgiving, frozen wilderness of Wales.
Unfortunately I was not able to get into this book and gave up after reading about half of it.
If you like post-apocalyptic tales you may like this book.
I received this book free from the Publisher as part of their Book Review Blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
