Seventeen-year-old Velvet, her little sister, Opal their mom, who is recovering from the Contamination, and Velvet's sweet boyfriend, Dillon, are attempting to build a new life amid the rationing and regulations of the post-outbreak nation. But the outbreak isn't over: more people turning into "Connies," more madness erupting, more killings occurring. And what they are being told is not the truth; the truth is far darker and more threatening.

This gripping survival story is the second in the Contaminated series. Just right for fans of James Dashner, Carrie Ryan, and The Walking Dead.
