Twelve-year-old Eddie Gordon Holloway has concocted his most genius plan ever to avoid chores… especially the dreaded L-A-U-N-D-R-Y. If he can wear all the clothes he owns, he’ll only have to do the laundry once during his school break.

On the day of the highly anticipated Beach Bash, Eddie’s monstrous pile of dirty laundry is found by his mom. And Eddie’s day has just taken a turn for the worst. Now he’s stuck at home by himself, missing the bash, and doing his whole pile of laundry. But mid-cycle, the power goes out!

With his first load of laundry wet and the rest of his stuff still filthy, he sets out to explore the seemingly empty neighborhood in his glow-in-the-dark swim trunks, flip-flops, and a beach towel. He soon meets up with other neighborhood kids: newcomer Xavier (who was mid-haircut and has half his head shaved), Eddie’s former friend Sonia (who has spent her entire break trying to beat a video game and was mid-battle with the final boss), and siblings Trey and Sage (who are dealing with major sibling drama).

As they group up to cover more ground and find out what happened, they realize that their families aren’t coming back anytime soon. And as night falls, the crew realizes that they aren’t just the only people left in the neighborhood, they might be the only people left… anywhere.

My Review

🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

This is one of those books that will make you fall in love with Middle Grade fiction novels. We follow Eddie and his neighborhood friends through a dystopian feeling setting. A bunch of friends realizing their parents may never be coming back… What's the worst that can happen?? The characters are well developed and extremely relatable & loveable. The pacing was fast I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. The plot was fun and unique. This is my first experience reading anything by Justin Reynolds but definitely won't be the last.

Huge thanks to Rock Star Book Tours & Scholastic for my gifted copy.
