Award-winning horror author, Jasper Bark had this to say of Joe & Me, “In Joe & Me, as in all Moody’s fiction, the real horror doesn’t lie in the apocalyptic scenarios he draws with such chilling accuracy, but the emotional truths he conjures from his characters’ heart rending struggles. Joe & Me isn’t just a story about the end of the world, it’s also an important tale about the impossible choices you have to make as a parent, the pressures of modern parenting and the lengths to which anyone would go to keep their child safe. This is compulsive reading, a story you can’t put down unless someone hacks both your arms off.”

The cover blurb reads as follows:

Joe is an ordinary eight year old kid who’s part of an extraordinary family: his mom is just a few days away from saving the world.

Forced to live in cramped quarters after the military pull funding on his mother’s research, Joe is thrown into the midst of a race against the clock to save mankind. As tensions rise and the family disintegrates, all must face an uncomfortable ultimatum.

Do they save each other or humanity?

Joe & Me by David Moody is released on June 18th, 2012.
