This was such crap! I felt like I was watching a culmination of the awfulness of Anakin Skywalker in EP:2-3, mixed with the same actor from Jump and some other crappy movie where the lead guy is a bonehead and a douche bag that I don't like and therefore don't care about. I didn't get past the 2nd chapter. ( )

I HAVE QUESTIONS! [b:The Eleventh Plague|10369932|The Eleventh Plague|Jeff Hirsch|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1300474622s/10369932.jpg|15185764]
OMAGOSH. The feels. Right in the heart. If you like suspense,and feels read this book. This was one of the best books I have read this book but, I still have some questions here they are, before the review.
1: If Marcus & Violet took Stephen in like a son why are him & Jenny hooking up? Its just weird!
2: I still dont understand #1.

My review: I loved this book because, it was based in the distant future when there is a plague called P11- The Eleventh Plague. The Eleventh It has very suspenseful parts that makes you not want to put the book down, so I kept reading it. My favorite character was Stephen because he survived through anything he could during the plague, and my least favorite character was Caleb because he tried to rebel against his own city Settler's landing during the war of the eleventh plague. I would recommend this book to teens,kids, and adults that like suspense and surprise in the book as they keep reading , and remember it was no plague it was a blessing. Surviving it, that's the real plague. Read The Eleventh Plague By:Jeff Hirsch for more! ( )

Starts very slow, but if you can make it past the first few chapters, I can promise not only will you be hooked, but you will be swept up in a whirlwind of fights for survival, and heartstring tugs. Masterful, pulling the reader in and entwining them in the lives of the characters. ( )

It was just okay. ( )

A very interesting and realistic read. This story is reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, but for teenagers. Father and son are surviving in a post-apocalyptic, post-plague world by scavenging and avoiding slavers. When Stephen's dad is injured Stephen has to learn to live in a community and depend on others, other then his family. ( )

Book description
The wars that followed The Collapse nearly destroyed civilization. Now, twenty years later, the world is faced with a choice—rebuild what was or make something new.

Stephen Quinn, a quiet and dutiful fifteen-year-old scavenger, travels Post-Collapse America with his Dad and stern ex-Marine Grandfather. They travel light. They keep to themselves. Nothing ever changes. But when his Grandfather passes suddenly and Stephen and his Dad decide to risk it all to save the lives of two strangers, Stephen's life is turned upside down. With his father terribly injured, Stephen is left alone to make his own choices for the first time.

Stephen’s choices lead him to Settler's Landing, a lost slice of the Pre-Collapse world where he encounters a seemingly benign world of barbecues, baseball games and days spent in a one-room schoolhouse. Distrustful of such tranquility, Stephen quickly falls in with Jenny Tan, the beautiful town outcast. As his relationship with Jenny grows it brings him into violent conflict with the leaders of Settler's Landing who are determined to remake the world they grew up in, no matter what the cost.
