It’s been more than two years since Jon Evans and his family left Pennsylvania, hoping to find a safe place to live, yet Jon remains haunted by the deaths of those he loved. His prowess on a soccer field has guaranteed him a home in a well-protected enclave. But Jon is painfully aware that a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can put his life and the lives of his mother, his sister Miranda, and her husband, Alex, in jeopardy. Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world gone so terribly wrong?
Don’t miss the first three books in this riveting series!

“Absorbing from first page to last.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“You will read it in one sitting, fighting back tears as you bite your nails.”—www.teenreads.com
“Everything Pfeffer writes about seems wrenchingly plausible.”—Booklist (starred review)Since this is the copy that I wrote for the book (except for that "riveting" part, which I think is quite dandy), I think it is very fine copy indeed.
I'm also pleased to say I'll be signing some of those ARCs at the International Reading Association's Annual Convention Sunday April 21, in San Antonio, TX, at the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt booth. I will be on a panel discussion of dystopian lit that day as well.
'll try very hard to be riveting at both!
