“Surrealistic and haunting, this story gets under the skin like a virulent infection… This is no ‘in-your-face’ blood and gore spree…” – George Wier, Mystery Author
This is the first book of the Kellie’s Diary series, and it is entirely from the viewpoint of a little girl writing to her diary.
You meet Kellie, a bright and inquisitive 9-year-old living the typical suburban life with her family.
She goes to school, complains about lunch, and thinks boys are gross.
She also writes daily entries into her diary, whom she calls “Barbie.”
However, her world is turned upside down when a strange illness takes over the city; during a massive outbreak, Kellie finds herself completely alone and stranded at at school.
She must find her way out and figure out how to get home, braving the dangers of the “monsters” that have taken over… all the while telling “Barbie” what is going on and what she’s thinking.
