In this short story, Arie’s best friend Alaina deals with the aftermath of the events in Surviving on a Whisper.
When should I read it?
The Scientist contains major spoilers for Surviving on a Whisper (book 1) and minor spoilers for Surviving through the Night (book 2). Chronologically, it takes place a couple weeks after book 1. I recommend reading it after book two, but that’s just me.
