A comet is set to destroy Earth, but Kyle Singer is determined to survive.
Tired of being treated like a second-class citizen thanks to her perfect brother, Kyle doesn’t think twice when offered the opportunity to attend an academy formed to stop the comet. It’s not like there’s going to be much left after the comet hits, anyway.
She's drugged, shipped off to the school, and thrown into a relationship with Ichiro Seung-hun, an exchange student from South Korea. The school isn’t just about stopping the comet. It’s a breeding program for after the comet hits and wipes out the human race. Terrified of becoming a baby-making factory, Kyle and Ichiro will do whatever it takes to escape.
Even if that means dying.

An engaging story! The characters are relatable and the story flows perfectly! I can't wait for the next one!
It's the end of the world as we know it. Kyle, invisible at home but secretly intuitive and brilliant, is invited to attend a special school in which she will survive the impending comet's collision with earth. There she meets Ichiro, who is handsome, quiet, and equally instinctual. They, as well as the rest of the students at the Realist Academy, are paired off and made to live together--an odd coed arrangement. Little do they know, Principal Hartmann has many more surprises in store, and Kyle and Ichiro find themselves as guinea pigs in her diabolical plan to repopulate the planet. This was a very good debut novel, and an intriguing story line. Niki Cluff does a great job with pacing, character building (both good and evil), and providing just enough intensity to make you want to keep turning pages. I stayed awake well into the night to finish. Though there were a few redundancies and I did tire just a bit at Kyle's insecurity, this book did what any book is supposed to do: left me wanting for the sequel. Note: I was provided a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
