Sixteen-year-old Mia Kish’s small town of Fenton, Colorado is known for three things: the world’s tallest sycamore tree, the national chicken thigh eating contest and one of the ritziest board ing schools in the country, Westbrook Academy. But when emergency sirens start blaring and Westbrook is put on lockdown, quarantined and surrounded by soldiers who shoot first and ask questions later, Mia realizes she’s only just beginning to discover what makes Fenton special. Unless Mia’s willing to let the whole town succumb to a strange, fatal illness that ages people years in a matter of hours, she’s got to break quarantine, escape the school grounds and out smart armed soldiers to uncover the truth. www.sethasfishman.com
