The Girl Who Found the Sun

by Matthew S. Cox

It started with the insects.

The mass die-offs had been a warning unheeded. Before society realized the danger, the Earth had inexorably begun a transformation into a place where life could not survive. A small group found shelter in the Arc, an underground refuge safe from the toxins ravaging the surface.

After centuries of darkness, humanity’s second chance is running out—and Raven Wilder knows it.

Her job fixing the machinery in the Arc makes her aware of how close everything is to breaking down. When the systems fail, the last survivors of the human race will suffocate in the tunnels meant to protect them from the deadly air outside—starting with the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, in an example of history repeating itself, those in charge dismiss her concerns.

When her six-year-old begins showing signs of oxygen deprivation, Raven refuses to go quietly into oblivion.

She will break every rule to keep her daughter alive.

The story The Girl Who Found the Sun by Matthew S. Cox is a post-apocalyptic/science fiction book that had me hooked from the first chapter and didn’t let me go until I had read the final page. The author has created a story that had me wondering what if and what would I do in the same situation. The storyline is amazing as well as the characters. You are taken to an underground refuge that is safe from the dangers on the surface. There are many challenges that this group face. One of them is that the machinery keeps breaking down and is close to collapse. Raven Wilder does her best to keep things running. She is intelligent, strong, independent, and is determined to make sure that her child will survive. She is someone who asks questions. She is dismissed by those in charge. What does the future hold for Raven and her child? Will she find a solution to the problems in the refuge before it claims her child? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me wondering what was going to happen next. I grew to care about what happened to Raven, her child, and the others in the refuge with every chapter that I read. The book pays attention to detail and I felt like I was right there with the characters. Don’t miss out on reading this story. I highly recommend it.
