You wake up in bed with the strangest feeling that things are too quiet. Running into the kitchen you realize there’s nobody home. There’s also no birds chirping, cars revving past, or kids playing outside. The world has gone silent. Searching the city for people you find no one, until you see something moving. You make eye contact with none other than the most popular guy in school who looks just as lost and confused as you. You & Me at the End of the World follows Hannah and Leo, two highschool students that wake up in their home of Houston Texas with no one else to be found. Between Leo’s obsession with 80’s hair rock and Hannah’s graceful determination to be a ballerina these characters were so lovely to watch grow. Truly a beautiful look at both the fun and the fear of living through the end of the world.  - Jonah

Description


This is no ordinary apocalypse...

Hannah Ashton wakes up to silence. The entire city around her is empty, except for one other person: Leo Sterling. Leo might be the hottest boy ever (and not just because he's the only one left), but he's also too charming, too selfish, and too much of a disaster for his own good, let alone Hannah's.

Stuck with only each other, they explore a world with no parents, no friends, and no school and realize that they can be themselves instead of playing the parts everyone expects of them. Hannah doesn't have to be just an overachieving, music-box-perfect ballerina, and Leo can be more than a slacker, 80s-glam-metal-obsessed guitarist. Leo is a burst of honesty and fun that draws Hannah out, and Hannah's got Leo thinking about someone other than himself for the first time.

Together, they search for answers amid crushing isolation. But while their empty world may appear harmless . . . it's not. Because nothing is quite as it seems, and if Hannah and Leo don't figure out what's going on, they might just be torn apart forever.
