Synopsis: Life As We Knew It meets Lord of the Flies in a mall that looks just like yours

A biological bomb has just been discovered in the air ducts of a busy suburban mall. At first nobody knows if it's even life threatening, but then the entire complex is quarantined, people start getting sick, supplies start running low, and there's no way out. Among the hundreds of trapped shoppers are four teens.
These four different narrators, each with their own stories, must cope in unique, surprising styles, changing in ways they wouldn't have predicted, trying to find solace, safety, and escape at a time when the adults are behaving badly.
This is a gripping look at people and how they can--and must--change under the most dire of circumstances.
And not always for the better.

I read this book on October 28th 2012.

This book was humor filled and had enough panic to get on my nerves - but in the good way.
I liked reading this book, but not to a point of drop everything and read. It is about a group of people that are either shopping, working or just hanging out in the mall and then get stuck inside the mall. People always say to me, "wouldn't that be the worst thing" but it wouldn't. I mean the people in the book kept on trying to escape. Why bother? It's a waste of time to try so hard just to get arrested if you get out.
I recommend this book for those who like suspense and funny books. It is also like a lot of movies where people get stuck inside building and houses and aren't allowed to leave.

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy panic situations/suspense.
