Little Apocalypse by Katherine Sparrow

This is a fantasy tale with monsters.  Only kids can see them.  So that leaves kids as the only ones who can fight them...

HarperCollins and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 12th.

Celia's parents have gone out of town and she's home alone.  She's assured them she'd be safe by herself.  But she didn't expect them to have an earthquake either...

She had noticed a young man on her way to library but he disappeared on her.  Then when she's in the hallway and everyone is checking with the other neighbors to ensure everyone is safe, she notices him and several kids going up the stairs to the roof.  She goes back in the apartment but can hear them moving up there, so she goes up to see them.  They avoid her as best they can, but she learns his name:  Demetri.  She'd like to be friends with him but he tells her to stay away.  Then he comes to her apartment and wants to hide from someone there.  She lets him and asks him questions but he doesn't have much to say.

She goes to a meeting at a church and finds herself in a group of Hunters.  They search for the big monsters.  She thinks they are her friends but her opinion changes in time.

The Hunters search for Bigs.  The Bigs search for Littles.  And somehow Celia has become a part of all this.  It's dangerous and it's a war.  It's creepy and it doesn't turn out exactly happy ever after but it's an interesting tale that keeps you reading.
