Shelter in Place by Deborah D. Moore
Check out this week’s new title for Teen Reads, Shelter in Place by Deborah D. Moore!
The government is after someone, but who—and why?
As the small resort town of Kapac, Ohio prepares for their annual August festivities, another preparation is underway of a more malicious nature. A suspicious toxic spill on the only road in or out, by unknown agents, quarantines the town and threatens not only its livelihood, but also its very life. Shut off from everything, nearly a thousand trapped residents—with only a limited local food supply—lose power, and with that, city water and sewage, and then communications. The government is the only entity powerful enough to pull this off, but why? Who are they after?
Undersheriff Casey WhiteCloud has his hands full when he is the only law left in town during the incident. When a serial killer emerges, the scared, hungry, and increasingly angry population turns on each other.
And then the heat gets turned up. Literally. And people start to die.
Check back on Tuesday for the first question!
