Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2012 Kids' Next List
“This debut novel is the first in a trilogy about a dystopian America. Eve, an excellent student, escapes school when she unexpectedly finds what happens to graduating girls, destined to be used to repopulate the plague-decimated world. Eve comes upon a group of rebel boys who have fled labor camps and falls for Caleb. Their quest is to reach the safety of Califa. This first installment has the feel of The Hunger Games -- at times terrifying and at times very human.”
-- Paula Primavera, Covered Treasures Bookstore, Monument, CO


Description

Where do you go when nowhere is safe?

After a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth's population, the world is a terrifying place.

Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a bright future in The New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school's real purpose—and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she's ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Caleb slowly wins her trust . . . and her heart. But when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
