Seven teenagers, all of them geniuses, live at the Pinewood Military Installation: the most secretive, state-of-the-art military base hidden in the middle of the woods, along with military personnel and some scientists. We don\'t know what they\'re doing there; in fact, they\'re not so sure they know, either. What we know is that on December 24th, the whole place will explode, and there will be no survivors. Or will there be? What was the cause of the explosion? Was it related to fifteen-year-old Jimmy\'s plan to sneak out of the base, by placing transmitters and fooling the guards with his newly created virtual simulations? Did it have anything to do with the special convoy that arrived on the base mysteriously? Did the highly classified Project Flower, taking place on the lowest level, go awry? Did it have anything to do with the disappearance of teen May Rose? You\'ll have to read this wildly futuristic thriller to find out. J. A. Henderson has created an intelligent, suspenseful novel with all the ingredients of the perfect thriller: a confusing plot, virtual simulations, DNA alterations, time travel, shootings, blasts, and, of course, the good guys and the super-evil bad guys.show moreby TeensReadToo
