The second volume of a compelling trilogy about a group of children struggling to survive and uncover the truth behind their post-apocalyptic world.
Five years after a deadly plague killed all the grown-ups, the world's population has nearly vanished. But a group of children have survived and forged a new family, a new life, and together travelled up the coast of Florida, looking for answers.
To their shock, they've found a group of adults, the only grown-ups they've seen for years, living in an abandoned shopping mall. It's a world the travellers had almost forgotten - cupcakes, clean clothes, adults to depend on. But something is terribly wrong. The family must find the truth before it's too late.
