The Last Keeper of the Light by Nikki Broadwell
This story is filled to the brim of tragedy, despair, cruelty, and loneliness, but also with hope, love, kindness, and survival. This story follows Sandal after the electricity grid goes down and through the years. Sandal is actually older when the book begins, but we live the past through her memories. I found a lot of this book incredibly sad, but there was always hope and a will to survive that made it worth the read.
