This book is entirely from the viewpoint of a little girl writing to her diary. You meet Kellie, a bright and inquisitive young girl living the typical suburban life with her family; she goes to school, complains about lunch, and thinks boys are gross. She also writes daily entries into her diary, whom she calls "Barbie." However, her world is turned upside down when a strange illness takes over the city. During a massive outbreak, Kellie finds herself completely alone and stranded at school. She must find her way out and figure out how to get home, braving the dangers of the "monsters" that have taken over... all the while telling "Barbie" what is going on and what she's thinking.
Follow Kellie's journey as she ventures out into the world, braving dangers of all kinds, both natural and unnatural, expected and surprising. She must learn to survive based on her own wits, and she will also learn which instincts she should trust.
