I really loved this book. The main character Josh is on vacation in a theme park on an island when all of the adults suddenly die. He is left with his little sister Maddie to take care of. A boy emerges from the group of kids left on the islands to start taking over things - leading them to get organized and take care of things. Only, this boy, Milo - becomes a bit power-hungry and things start to go awry. Josh could have been part of the Core - the group that now runs the islands, but he decides to stay with a girl named Zoe who he first met after the sudden plague and her little brother Sam. Zoe is outspoken though and keeps stating her opinion on the Core and how power hungry they actually are. Things really go downhill when they see lights not far from the islands and realize others may still be alive... but does the Core want to let them leave?
