Epitaph Road

 Here is the first in what I hope will be many book reviews and comments.  I have had many requests for books like The Compound so I thought my first post would be about Epitaph Road by David Patneaude.  If you are a science fiction fan or really liked books like Unwind, The Compound, or The Uglies, this may be one for you.

  Kellen is living in the year 2097, after an airborne virus nearly caused man's extinction.  Women now rule the world, and poverty, crime, war, and hunger have nearly been eliminated.  When a rumored outbreak of another virus threatens many lives, and in particular Kellen's outcast  father, he risks everything in a desperate race to warn of impending danger.   And, in doing so, uncovers information so frightening that the world may never be the same.

This is a book that EMS will place on their young adult shelf next year, but a great read for incoming 8th graders who love futuristic suspense.   Click here to see a book trailer of Epitaph Road.
