Monument 14 (Monument 14 #1), by Emmy Laybourne
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian
Rating: 5/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong.
In Emmy Laybourne’s action-packed debut novel, six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world—as they know it—apart."
- When I first saw the cover of this book, I knew that it was going to be amazing. Is it weird that I read books about the fear that I have? I'm really scared of storms, especially thunderstorms and tornadoes, but reading books about them actually really interest me and some of them end up becoming FAVOURITES.
- This is the ultimate survival novel. Like these kids are smarter than anyone. Most people would think that being trapped in a superstore would be easy to survive in, but Dean and the others really showed that it's not difficult at all.
- The characters were just plain awesome and I totally feel what they felt. <3
