"A funny, thought-provoking look at the friends you lose and the friends you keep, the girls you get and the girls who get away, and the big questions you ask, even when they don't have answers." --Leila Sales, author of "Mostly Good Girls "and "Past Perfect"

"High School only feels like the end of the world. What do you need to survive? Good friends, faith it will all work out, belief in yourself, and a sense of humor. "Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse" delivers on all fronts.

"Struggles with faith, family, friendship, and first love aren't the end of the world, but sometimes they feel like it to 15-year-old Phillip Flowers. Author Lucas Klauss skillfully and honestly portrays the complexities of teenage life, as Phillip discovers that the only thing scarier than, say, a universe-imploding supercollider accident is having to pick up the pieces and find the answers--or at least the questions--when life goes on." --Michael Northrop, author of "Gentlemen" and "Trapped"
