Exodus

Exodus by Julie Bertagna
Less than a hundred years from now, the world as we know it no longer exists. Cities have disappeared beneath the sea, technology no longer functions, and human civilization has reverted to a much more primitive state On an isolated northern island, the people of Wing are trying to hold onto their way of life—even as the sea continues to claim precious acres and threatens to claim their very lives Only fifteen-year-old Mara has the vision and the will to lead her people in search of a new beginning in this harsh, unfamiliar world.

Exodus - Definition of exodus (noun) mass departure

Depart this book......

I had a hard time reading this book as the story just didn't tie together. I got tired of Mara. She seemed at first to be a leader but as the book went on she got more and more boring. She leads people out of their land community to the unknown, looses her mother and father... goes hungry, thirsty, and then manages to sneak into the city? It is just to much for me. I give it 1*
