This question already has an answer here:

My kids read a YA science fiction novel about three teens who survived a world-wide catastrophe by hiding in an underwater cave that they reached with a mini-sub. At the urging of my kids, I read the book and, now that I'm trying to recall it, they have no idea what I'm talking about.

The details aren't all that clear in my mind, but there was some sort of catastrophe, possibly begun by radio communication with aliens, that ended up killing everyone else except two boys and a girl. Time travel may have been involved towards the end of the book. I would have read this sometime in the last five years.

It may have taken place in Australia or New Zealand.

I'm hunting for the physical copy of the book, but we have so many books and it could have been given to a friend of theirs, so I'm not too hopeful. I'm trying to put a list together of all the books I've ever read, and this is just one more I want to capture. I know that's a hopeless and vainglorious goal, but still.

    I know this one, I think I have it on Goodreads I'll check that when I get home in half an hour or so. – Probst Mar 17 '16 at 21:05

This is 100% it - The Tomorrow Code

They used a time machine radio thing to send winning lottery numbers back to themselves which they use to buy the submarine and it's set in New Zealand. I believe one of the main characters is a Maori.

  • That's it! Thanks so much. – rosesunhill Mar 17 '16 at 21:37
  • No problem, knew I'd seen this book around it was a solid book. – Probst Mar 17 '16 at 22:14
  • And it's now happily sitting in my "read" shelf on Goodreads. Trying to track down my forgotten books was what first drew me here. I stay now for many other reasons. – rosesunhill Mar 17 '16 at 22:33
