Your mother hollers that you're going to miss the bus. She can see it coming down the street. You don't stop and hug her and tell her you love her. You don't thank her for being a good, kind, patient mother. Of course not—you launch yourself down the stairs and make a run for the corner. Only, if it's the last time you'll ever see your mother, you sort of start to wish you'd stopped and did those things. Maybe even missed the bus. But the bus was barreling down our street, so I ran. Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong. In Emmy Laybourne's action-packed debut novel, six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world—as they know it—apart.

Fourteen kids from Monument, Colorado find themselves trapped in a superstore. Outside, violent storms rage and a dangerous chemical leaks into the atmosphere, killing some and changing others into something not quite human. The kids must band together if they want to live. But it won’t be easy, and there’s no telling what kind of world they’ll be left with. Emmy Laybourne’s Monument 14 trilogy is an action-adventure thrill ride that will have readers’ hearts racing. Includes all three books in the series, Monument 14, Sky on Fire, and Savage Drift. “A tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

It's over. Dean, Alex, and the other survivors of the Monument 14 have escaped the disaster zone and made it to the safety of a Canadian refugee camp. Some of the kids have been reunited with their families, and everyone is making tentative plans for the future. And then, Niko learns that his lost love, Josie, has survived! Or is it? For Josie, separated from the group and presumed dead, life has gone from bad to worse. Trapped in a terrible prison camp with other exposed O's and traumatized by her experiences, she has given up all hope of rescue.

In Monument 14: Savage Drift, the stunningly fierce conclusion to the Monument 14 trilogy, author Emmy Laybourne ups the stakes even higher for a group of kids who have continually survived the unthinkable. Can they do so one last time?

This was our last chance. I know that my wife thought this was a folly at first, but tomorrow she would see how right I was. Tomorrow a lot of our dreams would come true. Let me give you a bit of background. I had been a normal working slob my whole life. I was unhappy at my job as an accountant, but I was even unhappier when I got laid off. It wasn’t my fault I wasn’t working anymore. The economy was bad and there weren’t as many businesses that needed auditing and bookkeeping. I was sick and tired of being at the mercy of someone else, so I decided to go into business for myself. Since I knew there wasn’t enough work for accountants, I decided I needed to do something new.
