After a catastrophic hail storm and other global weather distasters, fourteen children and teens find themselves trapped in a department store. A biological agent is released in the air causing people with different blood types to have different physical/mental reactions: blisters, violent mood swings, hallucinations. However, this story isn't about what is happening outside, it is about the group dynamic of those surving inside. They have the materials they need at hand and realize they have to fortifiy their location. The main character Dean is a good narrator as we watch events unfold. The teens help the little children survive, some teens are more nurturing then others. This was a good YA apocalyptic story. I will most likely look for the sequel. ( )
