Summary
Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Peña's The Hunted is a high-energy, action-packed survival story and the sequel to The Living .

"De la Peña has created a rare thing: a plot-driven YA with characters worthy of a John Green novel."- Entertainment Weekly review of The Living , A-

When the Big One hit, Shy was at sea in style. The Paradise Cruise luxury liner he worked on was a hulking specimen of the best money could buy. And now it's at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, along with almost all of its passengers.
Shy wasn't the only one to survive, though. Addie, the rich blond daughter of a mysterious businessman, was on the dinghy he pulled himself into. But as soon as they found the rest of the survivors, she disappeared.
The only thing that filled the strange void of losing her was finding Carmen, his hot coworker, and discovering a way to get back home. But Shy's luck hasn't turned. Not yet.
Back on the dinghy, Addie told him a secret. It's a secret that people would kill for--have killed for--and she has the piece that could turn everything on its ear. The problem? Shy has no idea where Addie is. Back home in California seems logical, but there are more ways to die back home then Shy could ever have guessed.
And thanks to what Shy now knows, he's a moving target.

Booklist Review: "More than a month after they set sail in a busted dinghy at the end of The Living (2013), Shy, Marcus, Carmen, and Shoeshine finally arrive at the California coast, only to discover incredible devastation wrought both by the earthquake and fever-pitch panic over Romero disease. Condemned buildings hold stacks of untouched rotting bodies, safety is prohibitively expensive, and roving gangs patrol the streets with the directive to shoot anyone trying to travel, which is bad news for Shy and his friends, who are determined to make it to Arizona with the remaining vaccines. De la Peña keeps up the frantic pace he set in The Living as the foursome treks through ruined towns and tries to outrun the mysterious SUVs on their tail. And all the while, in an effortlessly slang-inflected tone, Shy weighs his responsibilities, worries about whether he is brave enough, and considers what makes a hero. With a careful balance between fast-paced plot and meaningful, diverse character development, this is a great crossover for fans of both thrillers and more character-driven novels.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2015 Booklist"
