A cross between the Gone series and Lord of the Flies, Quarantine #2: The Saints continues this frenetically paced and scary young adult series that illustrates just how deadly high school can be.
Nothing was worse than being locked in--until they opened the door...
McKinley High has been a battle ground for eighteen months since a virus outbreak led to a military quarantine of the school. When the doors finally open, Will and Lucy will think their nightmare is finished. But they are gravely mistaken.
As a new group of teens enters the school and gains popularity, Will and Lucy join new gangs. An epic party on the quad full of real food and drinks, where kids hookup and actually interact with members of other gangs seemed to signal a new, easier existence. But soon after, the world inside McKinley takes a startling turn for the worse, and Will and Lucy will have to fight harder than ever to survive.
The Saints brings readers back to the dark and deadly halls of McKinley High and the QUARANTINE series.

*Starred Review* The craziest thing about 2012’s rash of teens-in-quarantine books was that all of them were good. But as enjoyable as were Emmy Laybourne’s Monument 14 and Dayna Lorentz’s No Safety in Numbers, it was Thomas’ Quarantine: The Loners that blew the doors off the joint with a dirty bomb of sex and violence. The sequel picks up moments later, with infected teens streaming out of the newly breached high school until a school bus smashes into the opening, once again walling them in. Yes, it’s a bit of a head fake, but it’s a reset with a significant tweak: two adults are now lowering rationed supplies into the quad. Until Gates, the thrill-seeking leader of the new Saints gang, turns the tables by discovering that the adults are parents of the loathed Sam. By holding Sam hostage, they can demand anything—food, alcohol, condoms, whatever. The resulting bacchanalia has things looking up, despite Gates’ worrisome obsession with protagonist Will and Lucy’s extended naked hazing by the Sluts gang. With its morally dubious characters, charged sexual content, and double-take violence, this might be the darkest series going. Meanwhile, Lord of the Flies allusions (the adults’ benevolent arrival and, believe it or not, a pig hunt) add further interest. Here’s our demand: deliver the conclusion yesterday. Grades 10-12. --Daniel Kraus
