Sam has been having nightmares for as long as he can remember. Ever since his best friend died in a fire, flames have been a common theme. The day after a particularly disturbing nightmare, Sam is taken from school by men with guns and shoved into a helicopter with two other kids, named Alex and Eva. It is revealed to Sam that his terrible nightmares may come true.
The Last Thirteen fits very well into its target audience of 10-16 year olds. It offers a well written but simple read that isn’t trying too hard to cram narrative complexity down your throat. It will appeal greatly to fans of Gabrielle Lord’s Conspiracy 365 series, as it offers the same narrative intrigue delievered in small, easy to digest, month by month packages. I’ll most likely be picking up the next release in the series.
If you’re done with Conspiracy 365 and are looking for a series of a similar type then The Last Thirteen is absolutely the right book for you.
