This is very well written.
J. Buerkle
I called it a “partial” YA due to quite a bit of violence, though it is done well and fits the story.

Very detailed about the characters in the story and how different people can be during a crisis.

Format: Paperback
Stacey's Quest by AK Steele, tells the realistic story of a teenage girl whose life revolves around high school, her friends, and shopping trips to the mall. In every way her life is that of any other American girl. Soon, though, that world completely changes. Stacey and her friends find themselves at the mall when the lights and heat go out and a blizzard rages outside the mall doors. They have nothing on but the flimsy shoes and fashionable outfits they left home with that morning.

We follow Stacey in her struggle to find her way home, through snow drifts and encounters with dangerous and desperate people, only to reach a mother who is shocked into a near zombie-like state and a house that is woefully unprepared for an emergency. As the days pass, Stacey is the one who is faced with making tough decisions and discovers that inside her shell of teenage beats the heart of a determined survivor. I particularly liked a scene in which Stacey and a friend make their way to a grocery store that has now become headquarters for a band of criminals, handing out canned soup and the like in exchange for drugs, bullets, and anything else barterable.

Stacey's Quest is a real page-turner. I found myself reading it into the wee hours of the night. Stacey is only sixteen and one might think the book is suitable for younger readers, but I wouldn't recommend it for readers younger than 15 or 16. Early in the book, Stacey and her friends encounter armed, would-be rapists. There are scenes of death throughout the book, as one might expect, and mature themes of drug use and a brief mention of pornography. Parents of teenagers may wish to read the book first. I would say, "preview" the book except I don't think you'll be content with reading just a few paragraphs here and there.

Got this book from Survival Mom(thanks survival mom), and finished it in one sitting. Certainly makes me think about what will happen without all the comforts of home. Very detailed about the characters in the story and how different people can be during a crisis. Overall, great book, very enjoyable, great for the rest of the family (especailly the younger teenage ones) if they are not thinking about being prepare.

Very well put together novel. Good plot, great character development, even the dialogue and interactions were well thought out.
I nearly gave it a four star rating because I thought it overly long, it could have been condensed a little more. But a very minor, purely personal preference criticism really. I don't give many five stars but this one earned it. The novel would be suitable for even teenagers. There is no swearing, gratuitous gore or unnecessary violence. The character are not soft, but resourceful, thoughtful and determined. They do what is needed, while preserving their humanity and even community spirit. This book is vastly superior to many other efforts in this genre. Even the editing and grammar is of a very acceptable standard. The only regret is the author doesn't seem to have any other works on kindle. Looking forward to more works or a sequel for sure.

This book gives you a lot to think about - whether you're 15 or 55. Basically it's a story of a young woman who is faced with horrible choices and decisions that allows her to truly discover what her roots are and how strong she really is.

The writing is great and flows smoothly as Stacey transforms herself from a pampered teen to a strong woman. The choices she has to make are gripping and will give you something to think about for a long time.

If you like this genre, read this book. If you just like a really well written, well edited novel, read this book.

Some may not see the same thing I saw in this book and some MAY..
What I saw was what the author intended and I must admit there was a small tear in my eye when I finished reading, just now, at 5AM..
There were helpings of wisdom, wile, guile, love, loyalty and that emptiness that comes when your pet of 20 years lays down a final time..
Stacy and her friends embark on a shopping trip and when all is done they are ALL wiser..
I'll stop here so as not to be a spoiler and finish with this, buy the book, it's a good use of your money..

Great book about survival. Really makes you re-evaluate whether you'd be ready if we lost all our modern convenience. A real page-turner, finished it in one day because I couldn't put it down!

A good read. Not as gritty as some in this genre but a good book that never bogged down. Stacy's transition from a typical teenager to survivor was a bit to sudden, but I enjoyed it none the less.
