A deadly epidemic sweeps the country. Kidnapped and experimented on at a secret lab, twelve-year-old Callie is one of the first to survive the disease. She doesn't survive the so-called cure. But something of Callie remains, breaking free of her prison and unleashing a wave of destruction.
Meanwhile, her older brother, Kai, is looking for her. His new friend Shay–the last person to see Callie alive–may hold the key to uncovering what truly happened.
Shay and Kai can't outrun the plague. Can they survive it? Can they stop it?
