Famous Last Words #4

Famous Last Words

Famous Last Words is a new monthly feature here in Land of 1000 Wonders. I wanted to find a new way to share some fabulous quotations from reads old and new. The inspiration for this feature came from the character Pudge in John Green’s Looking for Alaska.

Colony East


Abby Leigh is fourteen and one of the only redheads on Castine Island. After the purple comet came through the atmosphere and released a deadly bacteria, all of those past puberty perished. After setting up camp and base operations and the mansion and establishing protocols, the 28 survivors of Castine Island made a home for themselves in the aftermath. Once they learn that the CDC is releasing a pill with a cure, Abby and her brother Jordan travel to the mainland. They experience things worse than they had thought possible, and must now fight for survival.

After returning home and delivering the cure, Jordan decides to set sail with a group of news gypsies, kids who travel sharing news, trading and bartering. There is mystery surrounding The Port’s radio disc jockey’s true identity. Fuel kings own territories on the mainland.

It is when a particular band of news gypsies comes to Castine Island that the Leighs and friends learn about Colony East, a big operative in New York. In fact, one of the gypsies was from Colony East.

When Toucan contracts what Abby believes is a new deadly virus called “The Pig,” she knows she must act fast. Her mission is to get Touk to Colony East for testing – and for the cure.

  1. I’m pretty sure this was the feature you mentioned on my blog today, Charlie, and really, Famous Last Words is not something that belongs to one person or another. And I really enjoy what you’ve done with this!
    It’s interesting to use book quotes in different ways, and you made me very curious about The Toucan Trilogy.
    Have a fabulous Friday!!
