Last Girl Standing
For those who loved STRANGER THINGS… First Sierra finds the dead body of the water district manager floating down the river behind her house. Soon everyone in town has caught a baffling illness that turns them into mindless automatons -- except for Sierra and a handful of her friends who have avoided the town’s water supply. Phone and internet access are cut off, and the sinister new police chief further isolates them by declaring a quarantine. Someone or something is taking over their town and perhaps, the world. It’s up to Sierra and her friends to stop the hidden mastermind behind this deadly plot before it’s too late.
Reviews
In this action-driven and oft-comedic sci-fi novel, 17-year-old Sierra Mendez must save her small California hometown of Los Patos from a mysterious entity that has stupefied the residents and replaced authority figures with androids. Sierra lives with her mother, an organic farmer who believes fluoride-treated water is poisonous. While fetching fresh water from the river one morning, Sierra finds the floating corpse of Los Patos’s water manager, and Sierra’s mom becomes the prime suspect. Suspicious of the new chief of police, Sierra soon realizes that drinking the tap water has caused everyone in town to enter into a catatonic zombie-like state. Matters only worsen when she notices that the stupefied watch the same subliminal message-imbued infomercials on repeat and that more sinister forces are at work. With the help of a few friends and an unlikely ally, Sierra sets out to stop the strange invasion. A near-rape scene feels gratuitous, and at times the narrative feels repetitive and contrived, but Kaptanoglu (Dreadmarrow Thief) offers an inclusive cast, a plot that allows for tension and tragedy as well as personal growth, and an adventure for our modern times. Ages 13–up. (Self-published.)
Kirkus Reviews

"The adventure moves along rapidly with plenty of action while saving a few surprises for the end. Fast-paced, entertaining, and exciting, with a fresh, believable voice."

The Midwest Book Review

"Action-packed, engrossing, and satisfyingly unpredictable, Last Girl Standing is highly recommended reading for mature teens to adults...Absolutely riveting."
