Book Summary

Sixteen-year-old Mia Kish's small town of Fenton, Colorado is known for three  things: being home to the world's tallest sycamore tree, the national chicken-thigh-eating contest and one of the ritziest boarding schools in the country, Westbrook Academy. But when emergency sirens start blaring and Westbrook is put on lockdown, quarantined and surrounded by soldiers who shoot first and ask questions later, Mia realizes she's only just beginning to discover what makes Fenton special.

And the answer is behind the wall of the Cave, aka Fenton Electronics, of which her father is the Director. Mia's dad has always been secretive about his work, allowing only that he's working for the government. But unless Mia's willing to let the whole town succumb to a strange illness that ages people years in a matter of hours, the end result death, she's got to break quarantine, escape the school grounds and outsmart armed soldiers to uncover the truth.

Reviews

Media Reviews

"The tension doesn't let up when the book ends, either - Fishman opts to end on a cliffhanger, paving the way for a presumed sequel. Ages 12–up." - Publishers Weekly

"While the posh school and the mad-scientist plots don't plow any new ground, the story will keep readers flipping pages. Good entertainment." - Kirkus

"There are a couple of places where the story drags slightly, and Fishman has a tendency to overuse phrases. Still, this is a solid debut; it sets the tone for the series and leaves plenty of threads dangling for the books to come, which readers will eagerly anticipate." - School Library Journal
