Intruders by Olive PeartAdolescent Dystopian Fiction
Six teens in NYC decide to explore a cave in their neighborhood (there are caves in NYC--who knew?) and, upon entering find themselves transported in time to a future city. When they get to the future, they can't figure out how to get back.
That's pretty much it for plot. I honestly can't even remember the names of one of the characters.
This is a forgettable book, thankfully. I really didn't like anything about the book. It felt like an amateurish effort. The apocalyptic future is never explained. None of the characters seemed real, very cardboard attempts. Their motivations and actions seemed stiff. Their reactions and speech bordered on the absurd. This was a book I couldn't wait to have finished. It didn't even feel like a 'real' book to me, more like a rough draft.
