Publisher's Summary

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

Tanya Eby did a great job performing the many characters. I liked her interpretation of Ellie and Rachel the best.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was smirking while listening to this audio book. It's really clever.


Any additional comments?

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.
