Don't miss this startling first book in a breathtaking new trilogy from Teri Terry, queen of the teen psychological thriller and author of the bestselling Slated trilogy!

URGENT!
An epidemic is sweeping the country.
You are among the infected. There is no cure, and you cannot be permitted to infect others. You are now under quarantine.
The very few of the infected who survive are dangerous and will be taken into the custody of the army.

Young runaway Callie survived the disease, but not the so-called treatment. Her brother Kai is still looking for her. And his new friend Shay may hold the key to uncovering what truly happened.

From the author of the international sensation Slated comes the first book in a powerful new story of survival and transformation; love and power.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I loved this book. It was a wonderful mix of everything that I love within a book. Teri Terry, this sits on par with Slated * YA Obsessed *
I love Contagion. It has an interesting premise and the story is told with great action and a breathless pace. The central characters are well-drawn and relatable. It blends several genres -- conspiracy thriller, dystopian, sci-fi, even a bit of the supernatural -- to great effect. It has a wonderful, evocative setting and sense of landscape. I think Teri Terry has a real talent for writing exciting stories that are accessible and easy to read but also have a thought-provoking thematic depth. She makes you think * The Bookbag *
Another award winner from Teri Terry! [...] This book is fantasy but thought provoking, much of it chillingly believable. [...] it has so many twists and turns that will keep the reader intrigued. Can't wait for the next one in this trilogy. Get a copy soon and enjoy. -- Linda Brown, school librarian * Reading Zone *
Fast-paced and intriguing... a gripping cliff-hanger! * Teaching English *
Terri Terry, author of the Slated trilogy has created a page-turning thriller in the first book of this new trilogy. Love andf loss are intertwined as they desperately attempt to take control of a their circumstances. The story closes on a dramatic leaving readers anxious to discover more. This is a book with a special appeal for teenagers who enjoy science fiction and dystopian adventure. * The School Librarian *
