author: Blythe Woolston

Last girl ZoŽ Zindleman, numerical ID 009-99-9999, is starting work at AllMART, where "your smile is the AllMART welcome mat.Ē Her living arrangements are equally bleak: she can wait for her home to be foreclosed and stripped of anything valuable now that AnnaMom has moved away, leaving ZoŽ behind, or move to the Warren, an abandoned strip-mall-turned-refuge for other left-behinds. With a handful of other disaffected, forgotten kids, ZoŽ must find her place in a world that has consumed itself beyond redemption. She may be a last girl, but her name means ďlife,Ē and ZoŽ isnít ready to disappear into the AllMART abyss. ZoŽ wants to live.

In a near-future world of exurban decay studded with big box stores, daily routine revolves around shoppingófor those who can. For ZoŽ, the mission is simpler: live.
