Description

As original as "The Hunger Games," set within the walls of a high school exactly like yours. Kami Garcia, "New York Times "best-selling co-author of the "Beautiful Creatures" novels It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning. A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you re as good as dead. And David has no gang. It s just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school. In this frighteningly dark and captivating novel, Lex Thomas locks readers inside a school where kids don t fight to be popular, they fight to stay alive. "Take Michael Grant's "Gone" and Veronica Roth's "Divergent," rattle them in a cage until they're ready to fight to the death, and you'll have something like this nightmarish debut...Thomas' whirlwind pace, painful details, simmering sexual content, and moments of truly shocking ultra-violence thrust this movie-ready high school thriller to the head of the class." - "Booklist" (starred review)"show more
