In this apocalyptic world, a disease is unleased to the masses. Callie, a test subject for the most part of her life, has escaped and on the hunt for the man who kidnapped her. Her older brother, Kai, wants to know what was done to his baby sister and wants revenge too. When Shay encounters this disease, she dies and reborn with the ability to talk with the dead. Now Callie, Shay, and Kai are on the run to save themselves from evil forces that threaten their existence.
I did not enjoy nor like this young adult fiction at all. I have found this novel unbearable to read and did not bother finishing the final hundred pages. I feel like this dystopian fiction has been overused now and all gets repetitive with a certain formula. I respect the idea, but the author did not make this subgenre work. Too much clichés and that was extremely distasteful. Not sorry for giving this novel a low rating.
