Summary
"What's a girl to do when her world is invaded by warriors from the distant past? That's the problem faced by sixteen-year-old Macy, who sees her quiet, normal life in suburban Minnesota turned upside down when things that should never be possible begin to transform the landscape all around her. The cable stops working, the phone lines die - and then the horsemen come to town. It's not the same America that she last went to sleep in." "Forced into a refugee camp by the marauding Scythian armies, Macy and her family come to believe that heading down the Mississippi by boat is their one escape from the encroaching madness. But as they make their way downriver, Macy's world just keeps getting stranger, and the wooden submarines, wasp-borne plagues, and talking dogs are the least of her problems: For in this upside-down world, old identities warp and family bonds are sorely tested." --Book Jacket
Summary
Presents the story of 16-year-old Macy, whose quiet life in Minnesota is turned upside-down by a series of seemingly impossible phenomena, from wasp-borne plagues to talking dogs
