Read + Review — Quarantine: The Burnouts, by Lex Thomas


This book takes place during the breakout of a deadly infection in a high school. The country is in a post-apocalyptic state and chaos is brewing everywhere. The parents of the children in McKinley have quarantined them in the school. Brothers Will and David, former students, have to go back into the school in order to save Will’s girlfriend Lucy. They have to go past the many brutal gangs and rescue Lucy, who they find out is now pregnant with Will’s baby and been abandoned by all the gangs.

I enjoyed reading this book because of the suspenseful and intense writing style. The one big drawback of this book is that it is very inappropriate and suggestive. However, once you can get over that the book itself is quite amazing. The characters have great personalities and reactions. This book is a great book for those who want a thrilling book that will give chill running down your spine.

One memorable thing about this book is how David and Will are reunited and they develop such a strong bond.

four stars
