wattpad_good.png Vicky C. L. has earned nearly 30,000 reads on Wattpad with her post-apocalyptic book, Absolute Contamination.

Wattpad’s Nina Lassam praised her work: “[It's] story that is steadily gaining traction on the site. Absolute Contamination is the story of Keara Haynes and her two brothers trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. When the world and their lives change so drastically with the arrival of an unkown virus, Keara and her brothers must navigate this earth that seems so foreign to them. Every minute is a risk, and every person is not to be trusted.”

Here’s an excerpt from Absolute Contamination:

Worry must have shown on my face, because my brother walked farther inside my room. When he crouched down next to my bed, he took my hand in his, and just stared at our hands for a while. He seemed to be pondering about what he should or shouldn’t tell me. A couple of times he’d open his mouth, and then he’d simply close it again, without saying a single word.
