No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz

Dystopian sci-fi is a genre that I can’t seem to get enough of…  But this book was a bit too realistic and definitely freaked me out!  I actually had plans to go to the mall and told my husband that we’re just going to shop online for a while!  The blurb on the back of the book may very well be one of the shortest blurbs I’ve ever read, but it summed it up very well:

“It’s just another Saturday in a busy suburban mall. But not for long.”

When a kid named Marco stumbles upon a small device with a red, blinking LED, he just knows it’s a bomb.  When the bomb squad gets called in, things take a turn for the worst.  The entire mall ends up on lock-down because the bomb was in the HVAC [heating, ventilation, and air conditioning] control room and it may or may not have spread some form of contagion through the mall.  Alternating perspectives between two guys and two girls, this book lays out the details of a terrifying possibility — being quarantined in a mall, with limited supplies, for an indeterminate amount of time.  [/shudder]  The worst part for me, though, was finding out that this is only book 1 and I have to wait to see how it all ends!

Happy Reading!
