Z for Zachariah – Robert C. O’Brien

This is an incredibly engrossing, suspense filled, post-nuclear apocalyse narrative. Ann is all alone. Her family went off to investigate if there were any other survivors from the nuclear bombs, and never came back. Suddenly, one day, a strange man comes into the valley in which she lives; she hides out in a cave, excited but also scared – waiting and watching. Wondering if she can trust him. When he discovers she is there, it turns into a chilling battle of wills – between the two last people on Earth.
