Convince us to read the book: I would not recommend this book because of a few reasons: I felt that there was little character development and almost all the dialogue was predictable and not grabbing my attention.
Memorable or Forgettable: I found this book forgettable because it felt like just another action book trying to be the next big thing. The writing felt as though it was trying too hard.
Cover: I didn't like the cover that much because it made the book look like another zombie apocalypse book with all the blood and gloom.

Quality: 2Q Needs more work

Annotation: In this action filled adventure, fourteen kids are trying to escape madness and horror. They are faced with the crucial decision of whether to stay or go.
