Summary
"When a sudden earthquake strands Celia's parents out of town, she finds herself on her own in a shaken city. She tries to reach out to other kids around her apartment building. Some of them, like the sad boy named Demetri, seem wary of letting her too close. The others call themselves Hunters. They claim the earthquake was caused by monsters only kids can see. And they think Celia is destined to save the city. Celia doesn't feel destined to save anything--but for the first time, she feels like maybe she's seeing things as they really are...."--Amazon.

Booklist Review: "In an apocalyptic adventure that blends elements of monster hunting, prophecy, and fairy tales, Celia's parents leave her alone for the weekend, and one earthquake changes everything. She meets the mysterious Demetri, who warns of a dangerous world and children, known as hunters, who have the ability to see monsters adults can't. Celia discovers she's the doomed girl, prophesied to save the world only she's not sure which side she's meant to help. Sparrow delves into this gritty world where monsters look like children and children are hunters, exploring the idea of good and evil as Celia begins to see humanity in the monsters and darkness in the hunters. The cast, both heroes and villains, is primarily made up of children (adults appear only for a few scenes), while fairy tale elements are evident throughout. This is a charming read that weaves a tale of monsters and destiny together with an adventure about a prophecy of a doomed girl who could save the world.--Elizabeth Konkel Copyright 2019 Booklist"
