Publisher's Summary

A brand new fantasy adventure from New York Times best-selling author Jennifer A. Nielsen!

As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge - and quarantine colony - for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can expect only to live out short, painful lives there.

However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on. But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so?

The Scourge is an explosively thrilling tale of adventure and intrigue, courage and heart, from New York Times best-selling author Jennifer A. Nielsen.

    "Great book!"

    I'm not going to lie, sometimes I get frustrated with books because they are too predictable or take too long to get into the meat of the story. This book didn't do that. It jumped right in and had enough turns to keep me guessing. I did eventually figure out what was going on before the big reveal, so to speak...but even then, there were details that weren't obvious and I loved that.

    The voice of the narrator was perfect. I was worried about that at first because she sounded too "sweet", but she does a perfect job of bringing this book to life.

    As an adult, it was fun to read, but I'd love to recommend it for 8th-12th graders. It doesn't have any explicit content, but gives the reader some deep societal things to consider.

    "One of Jennifer Nielsen's Best"

    This author's writing just keeps getting better! Strong female protagonist who isn't stereotypical, as we'll as mystery, a touch of romance, and the surprise twist like Nielsen does so well.
