So the world is about to end and you only have a couple of hours to assemble your perfect apocalypse team with five fictional characters – who would make the cut?
I ask this because I think about it a lot (like, an unhealthy amount of my time goes into thinking about this) and I decided that this is who would be on my team:
Darla from Ashfall by Mike Mullin
She’s basically a teenage prodigy when it comes to all things farming and engineering. Need to hotwire that tractor in the middle of the field? Yeah, she can do that faster than it would take you to Google it.
Lynn from Not A Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis
Sam from Gone by Michael Grant
Kira from Partials by Dan Wells
Hector from The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
You need someone loyal, someone you can trust when the world you as you know it ceases to exist. It will also come in handy if that person is a skilled fighter and commander of an army. That person, for me, is Hector. (PS – You’ll also want someone around you can swoon over.)
So, who would be on your apocalypse dream team?
