If the melt-down, flood, plague, the third World War, new Ice Age, Rapture, alien invasion, clamp-down, meteor, or something else entirely hit today, what would tomorrow look like?

3.0 After: Nineteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia

5.0 After: Nineteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia
This is a great anthology of dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction for teens. Almost all of the stories made me want to seek out the author's other work. The fantastic editors have chosen truly great representations of the genre. Highly recommended.
