Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)
In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible―Navigation systems, communications, medical equipment―fail.
In Sycamore River, citizens find their lives disrupted as everything they’ve depended on melts around them, with sometimes fatal results. All they can rely upon is themselves.
And this is only the beginning . . .
What a unique concept for a book! To imagine that all the worlds plastics are melting, therefore rendering much of technology useless. Its an interesting concept in its own self when one thinks about how may small plastic parts make up much of our worlds machines, health equipment and items we use in our day to day life. The writer creatively wove this tale and brings us something fresh in a world of books where ideas are often over used. The writing was brilliant! i also enjoyed the characters and how diversely they were written. This book is growing on me the more i think about it and I can NOT wait for book two.
