Can't wait for the next one in this trilogy. Get a copy soon and enjoy. -- Linda Brown, school librarian * Reading Zone * I love Contagion. It has an interesting premise and the story is told with great action and a breathless pace. The central characters are well-drawn and relatable. It blends several genres -- conspiracy thriller, dystopian, sci-fi, even a bit of the supernatural -- to great effect. It has a wonderful, evocative setting and sense of landscape. I think Teri Terry has a real talent for writing exciting stories that are accessible and easy to read but also have a thought-provoking thematic depth. She makes you think * The Bookbag * I loved this book. It was a wonderful mix of everything that I love within a book. Teri Terry, this sits on par with Slated * YA Obsessed *show more
