Her bookworm sister, Serena - immersed in a steady diet of post-apocalyptic young-adult fiction - predicts The End of the World
But the only cataclysm Mabes can envision is Sam not inviting her to the big event
Then it happens!
A vast alien aircraft in orbit!
Panic in the streets!
And a plague of zombie-vampire hybrids breaks out
Soon Mabes' house becomes packed with refugees - among them Sam and Sam's survivalist father, Ben
There's also the school chess nerd, Charles Wiggin (who seems to be in love with Mabes)
And the psycho Meyer twins, Alice and Cassie
Many months later, Mabes is no longer a shallow teenager attached to her iPhone
As a member of a survivalist group called Undaunted, she must struggle against cannibals, zombie-vamps and a mutant mountain lion
Aa well as the Insurgents and a rival survivalist band that includes Charles Wiggin - the guy she might really love
With its blend of action, comedy and serious drama, Apocalypse offers young actors a wide range of dramatic opportunities and a chance to parody popular young-adult novels such as The Hunger Games and Divergent
