Publisher's Summary

In a small pocket of the world the sickness has been in existence since the sixties. A disease so feral, it strikes eighty percent of all children under the age of fifteen. For decades it has pushed the boundaries into three countries. Those infected become mere shells, often in a state followed by violent tantrums. There is no hope, no treatment, and there is no cure.

Little is known about the sickness called the Nodding Disease. Information regarding it is often buried deep. But what would happen if the resilient disease mutates and breaks into heavily populated areas? With an infection rate of eighty percent, our future could all but be eliminated along with our young.

Nodding takes an emotional and fictional look at this very real disease.

In Nodding, the disease has mutated. Following an outbreak in the UK, a global pandemic ensues. The young victims are so violent, they are a danger to all those around them. The bacteria is resistant to any treatment, and deadly to any adult exposed. Governments must make their resolutions as time runs out for humanity, and worse, parents must face their most heart wrenching decisions.

Great from start to finish

Loved this book. I'm a big fan of this genre and this story was so refreshingly unique. It moved at a satisfying pace, gave me a range of characters to get behind, and had a satisfying ending. The narration was very well-done as well. Highly recommend.

5 stars

A parents worst nightmare. Would you be able to turn your child over to the government or would you risk everything, including the life of others to hide them. Great story, needs a part 2.
