Eighteen-year-old Oli cannot remember life outside the barrier, a life before the oil spill that poisoned human kind, killing half the population and infecting the other half until they deteriorated from the inside out, forced to walk the earth as Screamers.

Six: I started Harry Potter when I was around 18 and I still have not finished. I need to read Deathly Hallows.

Seven: The Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer made me fall i…
