'Admission' (Pandora Jones #1) by Barry Jonsberg
Synopsis: ‘Pandora Jones wakes in an infirmary - her body weak, her memory providing only flashes of horrific scenes of death. She soon discovers that her family has succumbed to a plague pandemic which almost wiped out humanity. Pan is one of the survivors who have been admitted to The School - a quarantined, heavily guarded survival-skills facility - to recover their strength, hone their skills and prepare for whatever comes next. Pandora's skill is intuition, but how useful will it be outside the secure walls of The School? And what if it leads her to question where the truth lies…’
This is a psychological thriller for teenagers. Admission is set in a world where a virus has swept the globe and killed nearly everyone, family and friends. There are just a few people left who have been rounded up and kept behind a walled community, to protect them from the outside. In this community, known as the school, the occupants are taught survival skills.
Pandora is one of the lucky ones. But why doesn't she feel lucky? Why this feeling of something is not right? Her curiosity soon leads her into trouble, and into wanting the answers to more questions. There are many twists and turns throughout the book that lead the reader to asking just as many questions.
Barry Jonsberg does an excellent job of leaving the reader wanting to know more. And his unexpected ending does just that.
