The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker
Publication Date: February 1st, 2012
Publisher: Usborne
Pages: 315



From Goodreads
Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

I found this one by hoppin' some other blogs. I immediately wishlisted this one and fell in love with the summary. Now, I have to wait until 2012 to fall in love with it completely. Aren't publication dates just a... ah... well, not fun.
What are you waiting for??

Interesting post-apocalyptic YA. It sounds like an antidote to all the angel-vampire-werewhatever romance stuff out there.

I agree this sounds so good! Already added it to my to-read list :)
That butterfly with blood drops and shadow images inside it is pretty ingenious by the way!
