Today, I'm going with an older title for my Friday Reads: Megan Crewe's The Lives We Lost.
The third and final book in the series, The Worlds We Make is coming out in 2014, so there's plenty of time to get caught up before then!
Published February 12th 2013 by Disney Hyperion (first published February 3rd 2013)
original title The Lives We Lost
Synopsis via Goodreads:
But she can't look back—the life she once had is gone forever.
A deadly virus has destroyed Kaelyn’s small island community and spread beyond the quarantine. No one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a vaccine in her father's abandoned lab, she knows there must be someone, somewhere, who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the mainland, they encounter a world beyond recognition. It’s not only the “friendly flu” that’s a killer—there are people who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the vaccine. How much will Kaelyn risk for an unproven cure, when the search could either destroy those she loves or save the human race?
Megan Crewe's second volume in the Fallen World trilogy is an action-packed journey that explores the resilience of friendship, the ache of lost love, and Kaelyn’s enduring hope in the face of the sacrifices she must make to stay alive.
