One year ago, a devastating plague called Strain 7 killed three quarters of the human race. Around the world, power systems failed and supply chains screeched to a halt. The surviving population of the United States has been relocated to the coasts; the heartland is now a wasteland called The Big Empty. But seven teens trying to put their lives back together will learn that the abandoned zone holds danger, secrets, and above all, hope.

Review quote

"In a near future, post-apocalyptic U.S. (population cut in half, military dictatorship in Washington), seven teens meet in a small Missouri town, forced to work together for survival....In this plot-driven page-turner, point of view jumps from teen to teen and chapters end with cliffhangers....[A] sci-fi read that will appeal to fans."--Kirkus Reviews
