The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe
To be released ~ January 24, 2012
Little known fact about me: I'm a HUGE sucker for
Also, I had no clue about this until literally right now, but Megan Crewe is actually Canadian! Which is pretty awesome, if you ask me. Love my fellow Canuck book lovers <3
Update: I should add that Megan has informed me there are no zombies. So, there is no potential zombie plot. BUT that does not mean I'm less excited for htis one- because it was my love of post-apoc, zombie films that made me appreciate any sort of deadly, evil virus spreading storyline :)
It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.
And then you're dead.
When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn’s community, the government quarantines her island—no one can leave, and no one can come back.
Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.
Because how will she go on if there isn't?
Megan Crewe crafts a powerful and gripping exploration of self-preservation, first love, and hope. Poignant and dizzying, this heart-wrenching story of one girl’s bravery and unbeatable spirit will leave readers fervently awaiting the next book in this standout new series.
