The year is 2041, and sixteen-year-old Molly McClure has lived a relatively quiet life on an isolated farming island in Canada, but when her family fears the worst may have happened to her grandparents in the US, Molly must brave the dangerous, chaotic world left after global economic collapse?one of massive oil shortages, rampant crime, and abandoned cities.

Molly is relieved to find her grandparents alive in their Portland suburb, but they?re financially ruined and practically starving. What should?ve been a quick trip turns into a full-fledged rescue mission. And when Molly witnesses something the local crime bosses wishes she hadn?t, Molly?s only way home may be to beat them at their own game. Luckily, there?s a handsome stranger who?s willing to help.

Restoring Harmony is a riveting, fast-paced dystopian tale complete with adventure and romance that readers will devour.

Exploring the emotions of family, an individual’s connection to a passion such as music, and an overarching love of life is simply not done enough in this genre.

We’re encouraged from the get-go to know much more about our characters, plots, and settings than will ever show up in the actual book, yet when we just assume the reader knows what a certain room looks like, we’re told it’s confusing because we didn’t describe it in enough detail.
