Counteract Publisher's Summary

Who do you trust when your world unravels and everything you believed is a lie?

For the past 15 years, the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism. Teenagers Tommy and Careen have never known life without civilian restrictions. For them, there's no social media. No one is allowed to gather in public places or attend concerts or sporting events. Only a small, select group of adults have driving privileges, but it's a small price to pay for safety.

Now a new, more deadly terrorist threat looms: airborne chemical weapons that can be activated without warning. The OCSD is ready with an antidote to counteract the effects of the toxins. Three drops a day is all it takes. It's a small price to pay for health.

The day the disaster sirens signal the dreaded attack, Tommy shares his last dose with Careen, even though doing so might hasten his death. It's a small price to pay for a friend.

Follow Tommy and Careen as they uncover a web of lies and deceit reaching to the highest levels of the United States government and join an underground resistance group that's determined to expose the truth.

    Nationwide food shortages have sparked civil unrest, and the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense's hold on the people is slipping. The Resistance's efforts to hasten the OCSD's demise have resulted in disaster, with Tommy Bailey and Careen Catecher taking the blame for the ill-fated mission in Tommy's home quadrant, OP-439. Both teens struggle to survive the circumstances that force them into the national spotlight - and this time, they're on opposite sides.
