The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Road meets 28 Days Later in this heart-stopping, page-turning saga of rage, hope and survival. A global earthquake has released an inner rage in some people throughout the world that they cannot fight. For those who can, life becomes an ongoing battle to survive - at any cost and for three in particular life as they knew it has gone and they must battle to survive...

Synopsis

Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

Moments after several huge earthquakes shake every continent on Earth, something strange starts happening to some people. Michael can only watch in horror as an incidence of road rage so extreme it ends in two deaths unfolds before his eyes; Clementine finds herself being hunted through the small town she has lived in all her life, by people she has known all her life; and Mason is attacked with a baseball bat by a random stranger.

Reviews

A fascinating blend between Matheson's I Am Legend and Collins's The Hunger Games , Dark Inside will engross readers from the first written words, leaving them captivated by strong, compelling characters as well as the savage, destructive world they have to survive. Told from split narrations, a sense of unity is established that furthers the plot considerably and brings urgency and life to the book. Well-written and brilliant, Dark Inside will not disappoint. -- VOYA
