All Mabeline "Mabes" Collins can think about is going to prom with Sam Finnick, lacrosse star. Her bookworm sister, Serena, immersed in a steady diet of post-apocalyptic young-adult fiction, predicts the end of the world, but the only cataclysm Mabes can envision is Sam not inviting her to the big event! Then it happens! News of a vast alien aircraft in orbit! Panic in the streets! A plague of zombie-vampire hybrids breaks out, and Mabes' house becomes packed with refugeesamong them Sam (who has asked her to prom); Sam's survivalist father, Ben; the school chess nerd, Charles Wiggin (who seems to be in love with Mabes); and the psycho Meyer twins, Alice and Cassie. Many months later, Mabes is no longer a shallow teenager attached to her iPhone. As a member of a survivalist group called Undaunted, she must struggle against cannibals, zombie-vamps and a mutant mountain lionas well as the Insurgents, a rival survivalist band that includes Charles Wigginthe guy she might really love. With its blend of action, comedy and serious drama, Apocalypse offers young actors a wide range of dramatic opportunities and a chance to parody popular young-adult novels such as The Hunger Games and Divergent.
