Strange Exit

Reviewed by:

Parker Peevyhouse has penned another futuristic thriller and survival story set in a postapocalyptic world where reality is not what it seems. This captivating science fiction adventure follows Lake, a brave and determined teen, who seeks to control the computer simulation that safeguards the lives of the young survivors of a nuclear holocaust – a simulation that was supposed to prepare them for life on Earth after the disaster, but now has trapped their minds in a shared virtual reality, with their bodies in stasis chambers. Tension increases with each layer of reality that Lake and fellow passenger Taran peel away as they try to rescue their shipmates, trapped on a damaged space ship in orbit around a devastated Earth. With the chapters alternating between the ship and the virtual world, time is running out for the teens on their quest to save their world before the simulation deconstructs. This mind-bending dystopia will throw the middle school and young adult reader into an intriguing situation right away and never look back.
