May and Isak used to live in a quiet suburban neighbourhood on Holly Street. Since the mysterious Event erased the world around them, they’ve lived alone, surviving off of canned food and memories. Isak sometimes skips forward in time, a strange new ability caused by the Event that he has a hard time controlling. May on the other hand sometimes hears a humming that she cannot explain.
Listen to an excerpt from The Patch Project by Brittni Brinn.
Ed is caught is a similar situation, the only occupant of a roadside convenience store. The Event not only left him stranded, it also gave him the ability of manipulating electronic devices using only his mind. Since that day, he hasn’t been able to speak a word. So when he finally reaches someone after calling half of the landlines in North America, he comes up with a way to communicate.
