When all technology breaks down and he’s far from home, thirteen-year-old Jamie learns he’s stronger (and braver) than he thought he was in this dystopian adventure.

Thirteen-year-old Jamie’s plane is just taking off when something goes terribly wrong. The lights go out, communications halts and the engine stops. After a bumpy landing, Jamie realizes it’s not just his flight. All the other planes have been grounded too. And every car on the road has stopped in its tracks. And no one’s cell phone is working. Technology has shut down, and no one knows why. Soon, it becomes clear that this disaster is anything but local, and people begin to panic. Jamie is now stranded 1,200 miles away from home and the world is in chaos. With the help of the plane's flight crew, a group of fellow passengers and a rescued dog named Godzilla, Jamie must make the long, perilous journey home.

“Absolutely riveting and a worthy addition to the Rule of Three world. Walters gets all of the survival details right, too, from treating water before drinking to dealing with injuries. Fair warning: You’ll want to block off some time for this one, as once you start, you won’t want to stop turning pages. You’ll also gain a new appreciation for the motorized staircases found at airports.”
– Jim Cobb, Editor in Chief, Prepper Survival Guide magazine

“The novel’s haunting premise and adolescent perspective give familiar tropes an intriguing spin…A page-turning story of teen empowerment with a potent underlying message.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“The story in Flight Plan is engrossing, and Jamie’s relationship with his travelling companions demonstrates the ties that bind in difficult times.”

– Sal's Fiction Addiction

“It's tough to write a riveting dystopian thriller and to show how horrible things can be while also infusing the book with hope, but Walters balances these two things well…If you don't have this series in your middle school or high school library, make sure you order them…They will get lots of use.”

– Ms. Yingling Reads

“A fast-paced read [that] leaves you with lots of things to think about.”
