What if the whole world fell asleep and couldn't wake up?

Meet Kevin. Just an average kid who slacks off a lot. But when he stays up all night to finish his history paper, he finds a lonely world in the morning. Everyone is still asleep...and can't wake up!

he said there's no one around and told me to call back later."

Andrew yawned. "Back to square one."

Kevin became very quiet and went back to staring at the road, emotionless.

Andrew hummed a single note. "Want to play video games?"

Kevin turned slightly to see Andrew with the corner of his eye. "At a time like this?"

Andrew shrugged. "Why not? It's not like there's anything else to do. No school. No homework. No life. Nothing at all."

Kevin thought for a moment. "True...but we could also do other things-things we normally can't do."

"Like what?"

Kevin grinned. "Like driving!"

Andrew's interest was piqued. "Do you know how?"

"I practiced in a parking lot recently. Besides, the roads are empty. It'll be easy."

"Isn't it dangerous to drive if you're tired?"

"You're right," said Kevin. "I'll take a nap first. After we get some rest then we can do whatever we want."

"You don't think..." Andrew stopped and gulped.

Really great. If you like to go on a roller coaster ride, just grab this book. And once you take it, you would just feel to turn the pages on and on... for sure.

****.

Pretty interesting. Lots of details and lots of action. Fast-paced. Very good on the kids point of view. Kinda of disapointed in the ending, however it looks like it could be setting up for a sequel, which I would enjoy very much!
