Well Said: The Things That Keep Us Here

"She'd raced Maddie to the emergency room that night, begging her to hold on."
Teaser blurb: "Her town goes into lock-down. But their safe suburban world is no longer the refuge it once was. Food grows scarce. Neighbor turns against neighbor in grocery stores and at gas pumps. And then a winter storm strikes, and they are left huddling in the dark. Trapped inside the house she once called home, Ann Brooks must make life-or-death decisions in an environment where opening a door to a neighbor could threaten all the things she holds dear."
