Description

First, the virus took Kaelyn's friends, then her family, and now it's spread beyond her island. The only thing people know for sure is that no one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a vaccine hidden in her father's abandoned laboratory, she knows there's only one option: seek out someone who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the mainland, carrying with them hopes for a cure, they face greater challenges than they ever could have imagined. Not everyone they meet wants Kaelyn to succeed-and many simply want her dead and the vaccine for themselves. With the chance of finding help slipping away, will Kaelyn be forced to sacrifice those she loves in order to rescue the human race? Megan Crewe's second installment in this powerful and gripping YA series tackles self-preservation, first love, and hope, while refusing to flinch from the sacrifices they require. This heart-wrenching story of one girl's bravery and unbeatable spirit will leave readers fervently awaiting the final book in this suspenseful and action-packed trilogy. Praise for THE LIVES WE LOST:"The scarily realistic settings and a tautly paced, well-researched plot will keep readers anxiously awaiting the next volume."-Horn Book Review "The characters are distinct, and many of them experience nuanced soul-wrestling as the story unfolds. . . . [A] readable tale about courage and heroism in the face of a world that is falling apart." -School Library Journal




About the Author
Like many authors, Megan Crewe finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives with her husband, son, and three cats in Toronto, Canada (and does on occasion say eh ); she tutors children and teens with special needs; and she can t look at the night sky without speculating about who else might be out there. Along with the Earth & Sky trilogy, she is the author of the paranormal novel Give Up the Ghost and the postapocalyptic Fallen World trilogy. She can be found online at www.megancrewe.com.
