Paradise Girl

Paradise Girl

by Phil Featherstone

 

Kerryl keeps a diary about her experiences after a deadly virus kills everyone she knows. Mostly, she keeps herself to herself in her house, and we follow her thoughts and feelings as time passes. The story is intense, and the twist that comes towards the end of the book takes you from the “this is a nice light read” feeling to “wow, there’s a lot to think about here” all at once. The author’s characterisation of Kerryl is fantastic; the writing economical and at all times understandable, fun and easy to read.
