About The Blue Book of Nebo
Dylan was six when The End came back in 2018; when the electricity switched off, and the world he knew disappeared. Now he’s 14, and he and his mam have survived in their isolated hilltop house above the village of Nebo in north-west Wales, where mother and son confide their experiences and memories in a found notebook – the Blue Book.
