‘One of the best books we’ve read in a long time’ Bella

Sometimes all it takes to bring a family together is the possible end of the world

Meet the Altman family.

Fifty-something Dan is struggling to cope with a mid-life career change. MBA-educated wife and mother Jen has dealt with life’s disappointments by becoming a closet alcoholic. Seventeen-year-old Chloe is obsessing about getting into the right university and her state tennis semifinals. Fourteen-year-old Max is trying to figure out when he can next sneak a puff on his beloved vape and plotting revenge on the school bully.

They’re a normal family with normal problems.

Until, one day, the lights go out.

Mobile phones don't work. Lights, laptops, cars, trains – anything that uses electricity – just stops.

And what happens next will change everything…

Funny and heart-warming, Lights Out in Lincolnwood is the story of one ordinary family and their unexpected adventure of a lifetime

‘Thrilling, heartfelt, humorous and wonderfully original. Lights Out in Lincolnwood takes a darkly wry look at just what happens when ordinary meets extraordinary. I loved it' Chris Whitaker

‘This is a heartwarming read that we couldn’t put down’ Closer

'A darkly comic and refreshingly unique story' Lisa Hall
