    1. Seventeen is as entertaining as it is terrifying. Just the thought of teenagers fending for themselves, after watching their parents die of a devastating virus, is enough to scare parents into preparing their children for an apocalypse.Lexi thought that with no school or work to go to time would just slow down. She even thought it would completely stop when her parents died, but it didn’t, life continued even if she did not want it to continue. She had to make decisions for both her and her si [...]

A great book all ages can enjoy.

    3. Seventeen, Published by Creative Cover Art, is a fictional tale of two sisters having to survive in a suddenly vastly different world, in e-book by Suzanne Lowe. A plane crash in Japan lets loose contaminants that gradually spread throughout the world and become known as the KV virus. It strangely appears to affect only adults, causing a terrible death. Upon the epidemic’s arrival in Australia, many flee the cities including the close friends of sixteen year old Lexi and her 12-year-old sister [...]

    4. This was good for a YA book though it felt a watered down version of what life would be like after society breaks down. I imagine it would be more brutal by far but the young don't need those kind of horror stories, do they? I would have also liked some more references to Perthling experiences or places. If I don't mention the editing and grammar I can say, on the whole I found it enjoyable.

    6. Ah, the dystopian novel, quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Here Suzanne Lowe gives us what most teenagers probably think they want - no adults - and quickly teaches them to be careful what they wish for. Sisters Lexi and Hadley are Australian teens orphaned by the adult killing virus known as KV17. Safe for only a short time in their family home, eventually they set off to find security with others like them. Lexi and Hadley are welcomed into the community of Jasper's Bay by the surviving you [...]

    7. This book is pretty frightening, even within the first few pages. The premise that is painted is something that seems like it is ripped from the headlines, so it doesn’t take too much imagination to be able to see it happening for real, especially if you keep up with current events. It is in the vein of some really great books before it, but told in a younger and unique way. The whole narrative involves a raw and heartbreaking story, with small happy moments found wherever they will fit. I lov [...]

    8. Wow, this is the kind of book, that you need to read in a beanbag with a cup of tea and popcorn and no interruptions. The story line which follows the lives of 2 young women, who are sent into complete disarray when a virus infects and ultimately kills adults, and slowly society begins to disintegrate and with it all the things that we take for granted. The strength of the two main characters develop as the book continues and this new found maturity helps them face a very different life in a new [...]

    9. This is a great book for young adultsI think a lot of people are reviewing this book who are above the intended age group, so they may find it not to their liking. But as someone who is of the age group I think this book has a lot of great moments and builds epic tension.It's a great idea of, not what happens in the virus stage, but the aftermath. We don't generally think about the people left behind after an apocalyptic event and especially not the children. The characters behave very realistic [...]

    11. I really enjoyed Seventeen for so many reasons. I loved reading a story set in Australia as I found that interesting, and I fell in love with many of the characters, especially Lexi. The story had me engaged from start to finish and I really enjoyed witnessing the slow and steady crumble of 'normal', mundane society into a world where new rules and power groups have to be formed by kids and teens! Very different from today’s world

    12. A really great book for anyone who loves the both the dystopian and post-apocalyptic genres, the setting of Australia and characters who you will both fall in love with and other who you will detest!Seventeen has a great concept of a world without adults and offers a thrilling glimpse into the chaos it would cause.I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading steadily paced novels about trying to overcome evil in a destroyed world.

    13. Seventeen, by Suzanne Lowe, is a post-apocalyptic story about a virus which spreads into Australia, rapidly killing off the adult population, and leaving the youths and children to fend for themselves in a deteriorating world. The story revolves around two sisters who are forced to rely on their wits and mutual support, to endure the rapid decline of the world they once knew, as deaths pile up, as the societal infrastructure starts to crumble, and as fear sets in. At times, it feels like one is [...]

    14. A novel story from an inexperienced author, but not bad. I liked the concept, but did not think that it was executed as well as it could have been. The writing is good (a few typos) but some of the concepts were not fleshed out. After the adults died (slowly) from a bio-weapon virus, the children are left; without looking up the numbers, I will hazard a percentage of 25% of Australia's population is under 17. That's still about half a million people in Perth alone, many of whom are 15 or older a [...]

    15. A note that, after the first rant, I think it is needed:I'm almost 28 years old and I was in for some survival novel. I hoped (at best) for a little brother of "The day of the Triffids" (book only) or "The death of grass". I didn't find it. If you are a teen, it is possible that you'll like this book. You'll probably need to stop right there and read a review written by any of your peers! ;)If you are not a teenager any more and if you liked the two books previously written, well, my rant is fol [...]

    16. It's unfortunate. This book had a lot of potential with a pretty cool concept however it was really let down by the poor editing and average writing. It makes for a hard read when every few pages there are errors and plot holes as a result of poor follow through. Two examples are a kid is on his right side after being thrown across a room but then the next sentence talks about the scrapes and bruises on his left side as a result of the throw, and a character who's hair was completely cut off hav [...]

    18. I really enjoyed Seventeen for so many reasons. I fell in love with many of the characters, especially Lexi, and loved to hate others. The story had me engaged from start to finish and I really enjoyed witnessing the slow and steady crumble of 'normal', mundane society into a world where new rules and power groups have to be formed (and formed by kids and teens!).I also loved the Australian setting. It's not often that you find a book that is set in Australia and is not focused specifically on l [...]

    19. This book is based on the same premise as the well-known young adult series ‘Gone’. In this book all the adults die, leaving a society of children and teens to fend for themselves. We know that biological weapons have been engineered with the express purpose of killing humans and it is no great stretch to imagine weapons developed solely to kill adults. So the scenario is credible. Also credible is the unfortunate fact that children left to their own devices are not very civilised and there [...]

    21. A fun entertaining thriller. Lexi and Hadley are teen age sisters who have survived a devastating virus that has killed all of the adults on the planet. They will find themselves in a struggle for survival as they join others to rebuild and survive this crazy event. The characters are well developed with a good story and a great journey through a new world testing the metal of all of the young survivors. The author has done a good job with the presentation and entertainment value of this story. [...]

    22. I hope you enjoy reading my first novel Seventeen. The setting is in the outback of Australia, a place that I grew up in. It can be a very harsh place to live, and without adults, the difficulties that face my two main characters, Lexi and Hadley are daunting. I enjoyed writing about Lexi and watching her mature, as she slowly realises that she has an inner strength that makes her a leader.
