November 2022. The human race has been wiped out by a virus called 6DM. The end of the world, if you will.
This is the journal of a Londoner, in her mid-thirties. She owns her own flat, has married her long-term boyfriend James and has a sensible job and the kind of life that she knows is expected of her. Like so many women she has learnt to make small compromises to herself in order to fit in. Things are fine.
But in November 2022 that changes. A deadly virus has led to a global pandemic. It's pretty much the end of the world. And somehow our narrator finds herself immune to the disease that wipes out the rest of civilisation. Who will she choose to be, now she's totally alone?
With her only companion a cowardly golden retriever nicknamed 'Lucky', she sets off on a journey across the country to discover if she is really the last person left alive. Told in flashbacks to her life before, and in the present to her new existence adrift in a world of burning cities, rotting corpses and man-eating seagulls, this is the ultimate story of learning to accept your own identity and finding out what it really means to be human.
