If this story were to become a book, and you, reader, were to pick it up off the shelf at a lovely Barnes and Noble store and turn it over, as one usually does with a new book, this is what you'd read:
doesn't like people. If being socially awkward was a profession, than
she'd have no problem deciding what to do after ending school.
Unfortunately, it is not. Instead she decides on a "fascinating" career
studying the "wastefuls" (people of the past who ruined the world by
using up all of their resources, and then killed each other off in panic
that led to war). The point of the profession being to make sure that
her society does not make the same mistakes.
Dylan is told that
the career is mostly field work, done alone, or mounds of paper work.
She is told that there is little to no interaction with other humans,
which to Dylan sounds perfect. However, everything changes when a boy,
Alec, shows up in all of Dylan's training courses. When the two are told
that they will be partners in an expedition to study uncharted
territory, they find themselves on the biggest adventure in history.
While camping in a tunnel in the ruins of New York's Central Park, Dylan
and Alec get caught in a time loop that brings them back to modern day
While in the past they learn that everything they have
been taught about the "wastefuls" is entirely untrue and that their own
Government, known as the "Administration," may be keeping a few secrets
about how the world was destroyed. With no time to waste Dylan and Alec
search for a way to get back to their time to uncover the secrets being
kept by the administration. They must get back in the loop before the
first bomb drops, or be stuck in modern day Manhattan during a war more
brutal than any in history, that will leave no survivors."
