After The Lights Go Out by Lili Wilkinson

After The Lights Go Out by Lili Wilkinson


This young adult novel looks at what happens to a small town in outback Australia when electricity and water supplies are stopped and all communications have been cut off. Is it the end of the world? If you ask Pru and her doomsday prepper family, they would say this is exactly what they have been getting ready for. 

While the book is situated in an end-of-world scenario, it also explores many relevant topics for young adult readers - first love, family conflict, loss and grief. With its engaging storyline, plot twists and feisty main character, this book makes a great read for audiences aged 14+.
