Contagion by Teri Terry
Synopsis: ‘An epidemic is sweeping the country. You are among the infected. There is no cure; and you cannot be permitted to infect others. You are now under quarantine. The very few of the infected who survive are dangerous and will be taken into the custody of the army.
Young runaway Callie survived the disease, but not the so-called treatment. Her brother Kai is still looking for her. And his new friend Shay may hold the key to uncovering what truly happened.’
This story is told from three perspectives - Shay, Callie and Kai. Each voice continues the narrative and moves the story forward at a lightning fast pace. The short chapters (sometimes only half a page) also propel the story forward rapidly. This is like reading at breakneck speed, but safe while sitting in your favorite reading chair.
The virus is spreading quickly and while the cause may be unknown or why, I thought the answer obvious as to how it was being spread. It was disappointing that the characters took a while to come to the same conclusion. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am eagerly awaiting book 2 and 3 in the series.
