|Summary, etc.:|| When Nicole Reed's family moves to a remote area of the Sierra Foothills, her life is completely turned upside down. It's not that Nicole isn't tough. She knows how to hunt, and how to build things. It seems like she's been preparing for the worst-case scenario for forever. But when she and her sister, Izzy, are forced to fend for themselves in this harsh landscape, her skills are put to the ultimate test. Then Wolf, a handsome boy from the neighboring community, offers to help, but Nicole feels conflicted. As feelings develop between these two, Nicole must make a decision. Will she continue preparing for tomorrow's disasters, or will she take a chance and start living for today?

The Reed family's newly inherited ramshackle safe house deep in the California Sierra foothills is in stark contrast to the neighboring commune, called Sadhana Village and Spiritual Retreat. But Nicole and Isabel's Great Santini-esque survivalist dad's marriage to their mom, a Killing Fields Cambodian refugee, brings even more discord to the teens' world. When Mom, a quick study who deftly embraced first-world amenities, sees their new homestead, she drives off and out of sight. And when Lt. Col. Dad goes after her, that leaves steadfast 16-year-old Nicole in charge. Thankfully, she is locked and loaded with groceries, an instruction manual, discontented 14-year-old Isabel, and the impossibly delectable Wolf, a tree-hugging product of the Sadhana hippie counterculture. Told in first-person accounts, Kain nimbly weaves together contrasts in personality and philosophy. Her insight extends beyond respect for her maturing characters to her readers, who will find themselves deeply empathizing with the Reeds during their transformative summer.
