Seven years ago, a chemical spill brought the U.S. Army to rural Penn County, Iowa, where soldiers established a long-term, medically maintained quarantine. Officially, it’s called the PennCo Containment Area. But to the people trapped inside, their bodies tainted with chemicals that give off a sweet smell, it’s known simply as Flowertown.
The quarantine was supposed to save their lives, but many of the survivors have grown suspicious of the government’s real motives. But not Ellie Cauley - her rage long ago burned down to hard, cynical pessimism. When a series of deadly events forces Ellie out of her apathy, she must prepare to face an enemy powerful enough to unleash her greatest nightmare.

My favorite new smart-aleck heroine
The best part about Flowertown is the protagonist, a smart-aleck named Ellie. I could really identify with her attitude and appreciated the humor her dialogue added to an otherwise grim story.
Tanya Eby did a great job performing the many characters. I liked her interpretation of Ellie and Rachel the best.
I was smirking while listening to this audio book. It's really clever.
This book was difficult to put down. From the very beginning, I connected with the characters and was involved in the plot. Great work, S.G. Redling! I look forward to more enjoyable books from you.
What a surprise
Yes, it's a complicated book with complicated characters. Nothing is easy in Flowertown.
The book evolved in such an unexpected way. I was increasingly drawn into the story and the characters' lives.
Her voice is very pleasing and she does a great job of giving the characters emotion and dimension without being overly dramatic.
Nothing's easy in Flowertown.
