‘Remember the Good Things, Forget the Bad Things’ By Lillian Brueckman

A young man finds refuge with country folk after a devastating disease wipes out majority of the population. Old CD mixes created by Tiffany, the almost unbearably bubbly girl he befriends, become the soundtrack to their survival as they travel across southern Michigan. As time continues to move and they continue to lose more people, the unlikely pair realize all they have is each other and the timeliness of their acceptance could be the difference between life and death.
