The first YA page-turner from New York Times bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz
In one terrifying night, the peaceful community of Creek's Cause turns into a war zone. No one under the age of eighteen is safe. Chance Rain and his older brother, Patrick, have already fended off multiple attacks from infected adults by the time they arrive at the school where other young survivors are hiding.
Most of the kids they know have been dragged away by once-trusted adults who are now ferocious, inhuman beings. The parasite that transformed them takes hold after people turn eighteen--and Patrick's birthday is only a few days away.
Determined to save Patrick's life and the lives of the remaining kids, the brothers embark on a mission to uncover the truth about the parasites--and what they find is horrifying. Battling an enemy not of this earth, Chance and Patrick become humanity's only hope for salvation.
Why We’re Waiting On It
As if growing up wasn’t sucky enough, now we have to worry about becoming zombies?!?!?! We’re so excited to read this one, especially as it comes out just before Halloween. I mean, of course, we have to read something scary in October! Dani loves her little brother loads, so she particularly wants to read about the love between these two bros. Jamie has this one on her shelf and is hoping to get to it in the next two weeks! Watch for her review 🙂
