"With a cushy job on a cruise ship, Shy Espinoza's summer is looking good. Not only is he spending time with his beautiful crush, Carmen, he's also earning money to help his nephew get treatment for Romero Disease, the pandemic that's raging through California. But then a devastating tsunami smashes the ship, and Shy's everyday concerns are replaced by the fierce desire to survive. Authentic characters anchor the breathtaking action in this provocative and utterly gripping thriller, the first in a planned two-book series. For another gritty, post-apocalyptic read, try The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer." Teen Scene January 2014 newsletter
