THE LAST BOY AND GIRL IN THE WORLD by Siobhan Vivian | Kirkus ReviewsIn her latest young adult novel, The Last Boy And Girl In The World , author Siobhan Vivian expertly weaves a tale about falling in love, "breaking up" with your best friend, and discovering your inner strength in the most unexpected circumstances. Keeley Hewitt and her parents live in Aberdeen, a less-than-prosperous town that has suddenly become dangerously flooded after a series of torrential rainstorms. The government doesn't feel the need to save the town where Keeley and her family have spent their entire existences; instead, authorities decide to evacuate the entire city, build a dam, and flood the area to create a pristine, man-made lake for richer communities to enjoy. But a small gang of people, led by Keeley's headstrong father, decide they won't leave their homes behind — not without a fight. As Keeley grapples with the end of Aberdeen, she also dives headfirst into a romantic entanglement with the eternally good-natured Jesse, sparks an unconventional friendship with the town sheriff's quiet, determined son, Levi, and attempts to work through strains in her relationship with her best friend, Morgan. Siobhan Vivian particularly shines in her portrayal of Keeley's relationship with Morgan. The girls have known each other since birth, and their mothers are also best friends.
