Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi

Tomorrow Land

                           Tomorrow Land

Can true love survive the end of the world?

Imagine finding your first love, only to be ripped apart by the apocalypse. Peyton Anderson will never forget the day she was forced to make a choice--between her family--and Chris Parker, the boy she'd given her heart. Now, four years later, as she steps from the fallout shelter and into a dead and broken world, he's the only thing on her mind.

All Chris "Chase" Parker wanted was to take Peyton away and keep her safe from harm. But he waited for hours in the rain on judgment day and she never showed--breaking his heart without ever telling him why.

Now the two of them have been thrown together once again, reluctant chaperones to a group of orphan children in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead still walk...and feed. As they begin their pilgramage to the last human outpost on Earth, can they find a way to let go of old hurts and find the love they lost--all while attempting to save what's left of the human race?

 (MY THOUGHTS)         5  Hearts!!!!!
Tomorrow Land is an incredible, fantastic novel. Mari Mancusi has penned an awesome story with first love, the end of the world, grotesque zombies, and a kick-ass heroine. And that's just the tip of this marvelous storyline. Peyton and Chase are wonderful characters. I fell in love with these two on the first page, and it just keeps getting better with the heart-swooning romance between Peyton and Chase. Tomorrow Land is mostly told in Peyton’s POV with a few chapters told in Chase’s POV, and Mancusi does an excellent job at showing you what happens between Peyton and Chase before and during the oncoming apocalypse. I love Mari Mancusi’s writing, and definitely will be reading more novels by this author.

Peyton and her mother went into a fallout shelter at the start of the apocalypse. Now after spending four years locked up, the doors unlock, and her mother dies on the same day. Peyton enters this dystopia world not knowing if she’s the only one left, but hoping that the boy she fell in love with at fifteen survived the last four years. Peyton is nineteen now, and she’s on a mission to save the world or what's left of it. She needs to find her father. Payton's father has turned her into razor girl. Payton is the only hope for saving the human race and the last human outpost on earth.

Chase can't believe after four years Peyton, the girl he loved and still loves, just walks up to him. Chase is not the same boy Peyton knew four years ago, and after the choice she made which broke his heart, it might just be too late. Chase has found something else to replace Peyton. Peyton might be back to save the world, but can she save Chase, the only guy she loves? And the hard question she must ask herself is does she even want to try?

Tomorrow Land has everything that makes a novel awesome: humor, action, romance, and characters that capture your heart. After reading the last page, I agree with Peyton, I sure as hell won't be going to Disney World. I recommend Tomorrow Land as a must read.
