COUNTDOWN It's 1999. Anyone here know how to save the world? OCTOBER Ever since the plague killed every adult on the planet, the teenage survivors have faced relentless terrors -- each one predicted by an ancient prophecy. Only one girl knows how to stop the prophecy from reaching its catastrophic conclusion. She is humanity's final hope. She will push herself to the ultimate limit. She will destroy herself to save Earth. Her bravery and courage will be endless. And completely in vain.
Daniel Parker is the author of over twenty books for children and young adults. He lives in New York City with his wife, a dog, and a psychotic cat named Bootsie. He is a Leo. When he isn't writing, he is tirelessly traveling the world on a doomed mission to achieve rock-and-roll stardom. As of this date, his musical credits include the composition of bluegrass soundtrack numbers for the film The Grave (starring a bloated Anthony Michael Hall) and a brief stint performing live rap music to baffled Filipino audiences in Hong Kong. Mr. Parker once worked in a cheese shop. He was fired.
