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. Fear of an impending disaster splits their tight-knit community and exposes the cracks in their marriage. Where Isole was once a place of old farm families, rednecks and transplants, it now divides into paranoid preppers, religious fanatics and government tools, each at odds about what course to take.

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

Review:

"Timely and terrifying" - Publishers Weekly

"An emotional and captivating journey" - Buzzfeed

"Frightening, fascinating, all too possible." - Paula Treick DeBoard, author of THE DROWNING GIRLS

"Never preachy or didactic, Reilly shows the costs of ignoring major problems--whether in a marriage, government, infrastructure--and the deadly consequences of such ignorance." - Booklist. "An entertainingly delicious read that doubles as a sociology class." - Pop Sugar
."WE ARE UNPREPARED might be in the vanguard of tales that deal with the consequences of human-caused climate change. As such, it is an admirable example of the genre." - BookPage."Smart, prophetic, heartfelt; WE ARE UNPREPARED is just the book I've been waiting to read--both wake-up call and salve for these uncertain times." - Robin MacArthur, author of HALF WILD

"Part environmental thriller, part exploration of marriage, it reveals the psychological storm that lies underneath the tranquil New England facade ready to sweep us into tribal life." - Joseph Monninger, award-winning author of ETERNAL ON THE WATER . "Like binging on your favorite reality TV show with a dose of climatic catastrophe and double serving of delectable drama." - Coastal Living.
"This terrifying glance into the relentless power of one superstorm and the primitive consequences that ripple through the east coast will send a literary jolt through any reader's imagination." - Redbook."In this sophistical novel, [Reilly] focuses on the ebb and flow of relationships. They're rendered with nuance, though Reilly throws in a pinch of distanced amusement, and horror, at some crazier reactions to these disturbing events. Many positions are thoughtfully portrayed here, even as they yank people apart." - The Improper Bostonian
