bookshelves: young-adult-fiction, apocalyptic
Read from April 21 to 22, 2012

A virus spreads throughout an island community resulting in a government quarantine from the mainland. Teenaged Kaelyn and her family must deal with the sickness, food shortage, roaming gangs of thieves and the destruction of their community.

The book is told through journal entries addressed to a friend of Kaelyn's who moved away which a very interesting way of doing it.

The characters are well-developed and believable even if Kaelyn is a little too responsible for everything and her Dad is a little too involved in things medical instead of his family. But then again, when thrown into that experience who knows, I may have been the same way.

It did seem a little odd that the mainland does not play that big of a role in the developments on the island but word on the street is that this is the first in a trilogy, so perhaps we find out the mainland story in the future....looking forward to the next two.
