In a near-future world of exurban decay studded with big box stores, daily routine revolves around shopping--for those who can. For Zo�, the mission is simpler: live. Last girl Zo� Zindleman, numerical ID 009-99-9999, is starting work at AllMART, where "your smile is the AllMART welcome mat." Her living arrangements are equally bleak: she can wait for her home to be foreclosed and stripped of anything valuable now that AnnaMom has moved away, leaving Zo� behind, or move to the Warren, an abandoned strip-mall-turned-refuge for other left-behinds. With a handful of other disaffected, forgotten kids, Zo� must find her place in a world that has consumed itself beyond redemption. She may be a last girl, but her name means "life," and Zo� isn't ready to disappear into the AllMART abyss. Zo� wants to live.
