Nightfall by Jake Halpern
What would you do if you were trapped on an island with no way off and no one is coming for you, even though they know you're there? It is the question that three 14 year old's face when they find themselves accidentally left behind when their town migrates away from the 14-year-long season of Night that is approaching their island. The novel is literally set in a world of a dark tale and with aid from a mysterious voice, the three must find a way off the island before the "new inhabitants" find them. The book contains a great deal of fantasy elements.
Mullin's Ashfall is a page turner. If you have ever been to Yellowstone, you will want to read this book. If you have ever taken Karate lessons, you will want to read this book! Alex begins a journey to find his family, he meets up with a survivor, Darla and their comradery sets the pace for this story. Volcano ash sets the tone of the story, much like C. McCarthy's The road, a tale of survival and social regression.
