Frighteningly plausible

"plausible" is not a word you like to use in conjunction with dystopian SF, but there it is - this is, in a nutshell, the tale of a girl who finds herself founding a new religion as she struggles to survive the kind of slow-motion economic collapse that leaves the have-nothings eyeing the have-a-littles as easy targets, slowly assembling a pack of disciples as she walks north along the road towards some hope of safety. Not a fun read, but a worthwhile one.
