About The Girl Who Found the Sun
It started with the insects.
The mass die-offs had been a warning unheeded. Before society realized the danger, the Earth had inexorably begun a transformation into a place where life could not survive. A small group found shelter in the Arc, an underground refuge safe from the toxins ravaging the surface.
After centuries of darkness, humanity’s second chance is running out—and Raven Wilder knows it.
Her job fixing the machinery in the Arc makes her aware of how close everything is to breaking down. When the systems fail, the last survivors of the human race will suffocate in the tunnels meant to protect them from the deadly air outside—starting with the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, in an example of history repeating itself, those in charge dismiss her concerns.
When her six-year-old begins showing signs of oxygen deprivation, Raven refuses to go quietly into oblivion.
She will break every rule to keep her daughter alive.

================= BOOK REVIEW ==================
The book slowly builds up suspense detailing life in the Arc, Raven is tasked with fixing the machinery supporting the self sustaining life cycles underground. Raven made consecutive trips to the top side and discovered that the outside is vastly different from people’s description, or it has changed drastically after the last ‘great death’.
At the same time, her child is showing symptoms of oxygen deprivation and she is determined to venture outside once again, bringing her child along for livelihood.
Once above ground, with several other kids, they ventured forth and the story evolved to encounters with different kinds, back in nature. The book also details the emotions of the protagonist along the way with attention to detail.
The story is realistically rendered with well developed characters, encounters in nature. The story line is compact and fast paced. Well worth your time.
