In the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Ring Around the Rosy is the story of a few survivors after the sun breaks through the Earth's atmosphere and cooks the planet. Among them are seven young people, including a girl in a wheelchair and a boy with Down Syndrome, who meet in the ruins of a school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. When one discovers a still-working portable radio in basement ruins, they scan through the dial and discover a single radio station still on the air. With this message: "Please come to Rockport". Thus begins an adventure across the state, in search for the one parent who may be alive, and aided by stragglers they pick up along the way. It's a journey that provides its travelers a chance to change, and find faith and hope. Maybe even a miracle. A dystopian tale, filled with whimsy.
