Pandemic by Yvonne Ventresca

Pandemic - Yvonne Ventresca

I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for an honest review.

 

This is a YA pandemic adventure.  It doesn't reach the levels of TEOTWAWKI, but a mutated H1N1 virus that mirrored the 1918 flu epidemic as far as disruption to 'normal' life goes.  

 

The protagonist is a 16 year old young woman who is already having a rough time after being assaulted by a teacher and dealing with that and the normal pitfalls of being a teenager.

 

I do not want to give the story away, but I found it to be a realistic take what could happen during a flu pandemic here in the States.  While the story isn't a complete downer, it isn't all sunshine and happy puppies.  It was a great story, one that in another couple of years, I would recommend to my godsons.
