Summary

The New York Times bestselling Last Kids on Earth series presents June Del Toro in her very own adventure!

Told from June's point of view--and set between the shattering events of The Midnight Blade and the upcoming 6th book in the series -- June's Wild Flight brings new characters, high-stakes action, and stunning revelations in an adventure that could only be June's. An essential Last Kids story that readers won't want to miss!

The Midnight Blade ended with a shocking twist: a long-missing villain has returned and now has an army of the dead at his command! Jack, June, Quint, and Dirk have battled the worst kind of monsters, zombies, and cosmic servants, but an endless horde of animated skeletons is next-level .

While the kids plan their next move, an unexpected threat emerges and June gets separated from her friends, dragged miles away from Wakefield to a town overgrown with monstrous vines and never-before-seen creatures. Drawing on her post-apocalyptic survival and action skills--and with the help of some odd new companions--June attempts to make her way back home. But not before she uncovers critical information about the mysterious "Tower." Information that the future of our world may hinge upon . . .

Kirkus Review

A special solo adventure following The Midnight Blade (2019) for intrepid reporter June Del Toro. During the middle of an equipment test, the "last kids" of the series title are interrupted by a band of banditlike Rifters chasing a mysterious creature. In the chaos, June's DoomKart ends up dragged far away before she can liberate herself for a solo adventure--well, almost solo, as cute mascot-type character Globlet joins her. They follow a scream and find the creature, cornered by the Rifters--who plan to take it to Thrull, instrumental in the takeover of the Earth. After a daring, explosive rescue, June realizes the creature's a baby Winged Wretch--but unlike other Wretches June's encountered, he's not evil, so she decides to help him get back to his kind. Along the way, her party is rounded out by comic-relief character Johnny Steve, an "oversized-owl dude" and a self-proclaimed expert on humans with hilariously wrong facts. They face dangerous obstacles and reversals before a strong theme of belonging and interconnection emerges to add heart to the jokes and action, a theme that emphasizes June's separation from the original cast and harks back to the first book. The art is well integrated into the story, especially helpful in blocking the frequent action sequences. The ending pushes along the series' overall storyline. June is implied to be Latinx; Quint appears black; Dirk and Jack seem white. A very funny, solid little side quest with great characters.
