Meg Little Reilly places a young couple in harm’s way—both literally and emotionally—as they face a cataclysmic storm that threatens to decimate their Vermont town, and the Eastern Seaboard in her penetrating debut novel, WE ARE UNPREPARED.
Ash and Pia move from hipster Brooklyn to rustic Vermont in search of a more authentic life. But just months after settling in, the forecast of a superstorm disrupts their dream.

WE ARE UNPREPARED is an emotional journey, a terrifying glimpse into the human costs of our changing earth and, ultimately, a cautionary tale of survival and the human

We were unprepared
I did not like this book. Main character was silly, lazy and fickle. I would not recommend
The end was worth the wait
I felt the build up and near misses of "the storm" in the whole first 2/3 of the book to a bit too drug out. I had all but lost interest until, out of (basically) no where, the whole thing speeds up, because extremely exciting and then I couldn't set the book down. Definitely worth the wait.
