If you took RL Stevenson's Treasure Island and crossed it with George Stewart's Earth Abides and added The Incredible Journey, this is just what you'd get. Very, very good. And also: DOGS.
A lot of the fun is in all the apocalyptic novels the protagonist has read. He reads a lot, as does his family - his father believes in "Liebowitzing" - keeping knowledge from past civilizations safe and passing it on, from the book A Canticle for Leibowitz. ?

rretzler Loved A Canticle for Leibowitz! 16h
Aimeesue @rretzler I love post-apoc stories. It gives one something to appreciate. Even when the present- day world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket, they remind you that there are still good things in it that we haven't yet lost. 6h
rretzler @Aimeesue They are also some of my favorites. I love any kind of dystopian novel in general, for the same reason. 5h

Finished this one during a buddyread.... Well, I like the idea behind the book pretty much, but the book is too long, it's too dump and there are happening so many things, that I don't believe them to happen. But besides it was a read definitely out of my comfort zone... 😉

#BFCr3 week 2. Our city hosts 4 summerfests and this evening one was at a park only about a mile from my house so of course we walked! I was super bummed though when I found out that the 80‘s band Starship had to cancel. I love those guys!

LibrarianJen It was a great week fitness wise. The top picture is of me walking and laughing because I wasn‘t sitting in the back to school traffic line. It seriously would have taken me the same amount of time to drive as it did walking. I managed 76,402 steps and 266 exercise minutes! @CaroPi was a huge help with her encouragement and check in this week. (edited) 5d
britt_brooke Great week!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 What a bummer about Starship, though. 5d

This is the first book by Ally Carter I‘ve read, and it was definitely a fun #YA read! Teenagers trained by White House Secret Service men end up fighting for their lives against angry Russians while surviving in the Alaskan wilderness. There‘s some violence and a a dash of romance but nothing to keep me from recommending it to younger YA readers.

LibrarianRyan Her Gallagher girl books are better. But this is an auto buy author for me. 5d
Daisey @LibrarianRyan I have a couple random ones on my class shelves, but after reading this I‘ll have to specifically look up the Gallagher Girls series and do more to promote her books to students. 5d
LibrarianRyan @Daisey they are great for middle - high because they are relatively clean with minimal language and almost no sex. Kissing yes. But nothing more. 5d

? Hatchet by Gary Paulson (I read the last few chapters to my nieces when I was visiting them in Argentina)
? Cabin in the Woods (haven't seen it, but that's cuz my interest is horror is relatively recent)
? -a random song from a middle school play that was gibberish because it was in "chlorophyll," the language of the aliens called "Chlorophyll." It was a wacky, garden-themed play-

Book: The Grounding of a Group Six - a young adult book I read when I was actually a young adult that really stuck with me - five high school students discover that instead of paying for boarding school their parents have paid to have them eliminated from their lives - permanently!
Movie: The Great Outdoors
Song: Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah (the Camp Granada song)

MaleficentBookDragon Well, that book sounds dark.😬 1w

LibrarianJen A boy sailing across the Atlantic after a guy who stole his dog. Or the other book I‘m reading has multiple characters: a boy who can pull objects from his dreams, while a girl can‘t kiss any guys in case they are her true love and die, and a boy who can‘t accept charity and is messing up his friendships, a ghost who nobody knew was a ghost, an finally a rich guy who only wants to find a mythical person and doesn‘t mean to be pretentious.
