The One Way Bridge is a post apocalypse slice of life novel about seven survivors of a mysterious world ending event known as “The Silence.” The story primarily follows Lieu, a young transgirl and the only child among the seven, as she learns more about her found family and about herself in a world that has already ended. It explores the themes of loneliness, grief, self loathing and love, and the inevitable necessity of change.
