Synopsis

A suspenseful survival story and modern day Lord of the Flies set in a mall that looks just like yours.


A biological bomb has just been discovered in the air ducts of a busy suburban mall. At first nobody knows if it's even life threatening, but then the entire complex is quarantined, people start getting sick, supplies start running low, and there's no way out. Among the hundreds of trapped shoppers are four teens.

These four different narrators, each with their own stories, must cope in unique, surprising manners, changing in ways they wouldn't have predicted, trying to find solace, safety, and escape at a time when the adults are behaving badly. This is a gripping look at people and how they can—and must—change under the most dire of circumstances.

And not always for the better.



"Think of the heart-racing chase of The Hunger Games, but a giant mall is your arena."—Seventeen.com

"[An] engrossing . . . thriller."—Kirkus Reviews

"This tense trilogy opener . . . build[s] a sense of claustrophobia and desperation."—Publishers Weekly

This book works to build up to the sequel, thus it does not create the major interest you may accept. The story only really became interesting in the final chapters, but not interesting enough to get me to read the sequel
