Mama Reads Sugar Scars by @TravisLNorwood #review #blogtour @ghbtours

Sugar Scars
By- Travis Norwood
Genre- Post Apocalyptic/Sci Fi
Living after the apocalypse really isn’t that hard for most of the survivors. The virus killed all but 1 in 10,000. The few remaining people are left in a world of virtually unlimited resources. Grocery stores overflowing with food and drink. Thousands of empty houses to pick from.
But one survivor, a nineteen-year-old girl, requires more than simple food, water and shelter. As a type 1 diabetic her body desperately needs insulin to stay alive. With civilization gone, no one manufactures it anymore. She hoards all the insulin she can find, but every day marches toward the end of her stash of vials. She has a choice. Accept her fate and death, or tackle the almost insurmountable task of extracting and refining the insulin herself.

Brilliant scientists struggled to make the first insulin. What hope does a high school dropout have?
Mama’s Thoughts:
Well this was a bit of something different.  And most welcome.  In the world of post-apocalyptic fiction too often the characters struggle with exactly the same thing- basic survival and staying in shape enough to run (or fight) when necessary.  What Sugar Scars sheds some light on is just how much harder all of this is when you have to deal with a chronic disease, especially one as debilitating as diabetes.  It’s very easy to take for granted our modern conveniences, and I found the contest between man and nature very gripping in this particular story.  Fast paced with a literal countdown to demise, this book will have you skipping on your last bit of sleep or that extra re-run of The Walking Dead.  4 stars!
About the Author-
Travis Norwood lives in Montgomery, Alabama with his wife and five children. Like Sugar, he would be perfectly happy living in a world emptied of almost all people. But not you, of course. He sincerely hopes you survive the apocalypse.
