A Good Teen Adventure Novel

As the human race was dieing out, they built an Ark which held a few humans in suspended animation until the day in the distant future when there would be a chance for humans to live again. Fisher awakens knowing his name and little else. The Ark is being blown to bits around him. He is the sole survivor. The first human to walk the earth in millenia, and probably the last,. Can he save the human race? Can he even survive?

I think this is a good book for a young reader looking for an adventure story. It even has bits of humor. Nobody's life is going to be diminished if they miss it though.


Was a little confusing in the beginning, but got better
