Summary
After surviving the earthquake and tsunami, Shy manages to make it back to land but he is far from safe because a secret his cruise ship co-worker, Addie, shared with him is one that people have killed for, and now that Shy knows, he has become a moving target.
Published Reviews
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"
