Wells, Robison

In this unnerving thriller, Wells (Feedback 2012) ingeniously connects the stories of four teens all infected with a bizarre virus that has given them powers ranging from super-strength and invisibility to mind control. Jack and Aubrey are small-town high school students who live in an America under siege by terrorists intent on taking out the country's landmarks, power grids, and populace. Their paths cross with Laura and Alec, two highly trained teenage terrorists. The four find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and danger where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.
