Description

Take the plunge into a post-apocalyptic nightmare.

When Amelia "Mel" Eichenwald wakes up one morning, she finds herself in endless freefall towards an Earth that is no longer there, surrounded by the junk of human existence. From high heels to houses, billions of random items drop alongside her like fallout from an exploded mall.

She soon discovers she's not alone. Others have been similarly plucked out of their lives and dropped off in mid-air. But why? For what purpose? And more importantly--and urgently--what is she going to eat? Where can she safely sleep?

Plummet follows Mel as she attempts to survive, find allies, and negotiating the balance between becoming prey or predator. What makes us human -- and what keeps us human --when gravity is all there is? How do you take a stand when there is literally no place to sit? Plummet will propel readers into a new dimension that's part fable, part post-apocalyptic nightmare.
