Description

Fourteen kids stranded inside a superstore. Inside they have everything they could ever need. There's junk food and clothes, computer games and books, drugs and alcohol ... and without adult supervision they can do whatever they want.
Sounds like fun?

But outside the world is being ripped apart by violent storms and chemicals leaking into the atmosphere that, depending on blood type, leave victims paranoid, violent or dead.

The kids must remain inside, forced to create their own community, unsure if they'll ever be able to leave. Can they stop the world they've created inside from self-destructing too?

Review quote

'An unforgettable opener ...a realistic, multi-character survival story ... the ending is a real thriller.' * Booklist * a tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller. * Publishers Weekly * The fast-paced novel, contains fascinating characters, each one has their own way of trying to make sure their own world, inside the superstore, doesn't self-destruct. * Huffington Post * Laybourne's strong characterizations of the resourceful, optimistic children who make up this improvised family intensify the horror of the situation and make the series of catastrophes frighteningly real. * New York Times *
