This is labeled a YA novel but labels are just labels, and this is a great story for all ages. The author develops a good scenario of a contagion, of being left to survive as best as possible, quarantined on an island. The characters devotion to each other is constantly being tested as events turn horrific and hope runs out! Author includes some great twists and turns near the end and the descriptions of disruptive changes that occurs to the girls makes for a disturbing story.
