an almost insurmountable task - Sugar Scars by Travis Norwood

Living after the apocalypse really isn’t that hard for most of the survivors. The virus killed all but 1 in 10,000. The few remaining people are left in a world of virtually unlimited resources. Grocery stores overflowing with food and drink. Thousands of empty houses to pick from.

Description:

Living after the apocalypse really isn’t that hard for most of the survivors. The virus killed all but 1 in 10,000. The few remaining people are left in a world of virtually unlimited resources. Grocery stores overflowing with food and drink. Thousands of empty houses to pick from.

But one survivor, a nineteen-year-old girl, requires more than simple food, water and shelter. As a type 1 diabetic her body desperately needs insulin to stay alive. With civilization gone, no one manufactures it anymore. She hoards all the insulin she can find, but every day marches toward the end of her stash of vials. She has a choice. Accept her fate and death, or tackle the almost insurmountable task of extracting and refining the insulin herself.

Brilliant scientists struggled to make the first insulin. What hope does a high school dropout have?

"Travis did SUCH a phenomenal job in creating characters that quickly keep you engaged and become your friends! It was so refreshing to read the true life scenarios of a day in the life of a Type One Diabetic- not all of them revolving around carb counting and insulin injections- but real life situations of human nature as well. I would absolutely read this book again and again. Travis did his research on Type One Diabetes. This book is absolutely a treasure." Amazon, Reba P
