i sat and read this in an afternoon -- it was so engrossing and fantastic! ( )

This is one of the best books I've read in years. All three of the books in the series tell the continuing adventures of a group of schoolchildren caught in the middle of a chemical disaster. "Compounds" are spread throughout the town after a hailstorm. The compounds evoke different reactions from each blood group.
The children in the book, 14 students in a town called Monument, have to deal with all sorts of trials and tribulations throughout the series in the hopes of making it to safety, and being able to see their families again.
The series deals with heavy issues, and is remarkably written on top of it. A definite must-read trilogy. ( )

3.5 Stars. I like the premise, but some of the events and characters didn't hold up completely for me. Overall not bad and I will probably read the next one. ( )

Interesting take off re: Post Apocalypse survival. My only question is the veracity of the type of weaponized hazards released from NORAD which appeared far too benign in their effects the kids experienced. Also, why would they be stored at NORAD in the first place ?

All in all a good read especially for youngsters. ( )

It was good. No zombies, but still good. The lack of zombies was (and always is) disappointing, although there was a situation somewhat similar to the "zombies" in the movie Zomblieland and 28 Days Later. Being that these people were not previously dead, they are not technically zombies. They just possess the same powers of reasoning one associates with zombies. Anyway, interesting premise. Why is trying to figure out the ins and outs of survival in an apocalyptic situation so bloody fascinating? On to the sequel! ( )
