The Hunger Games meets the X-Men in an exciting postapocalyptic debut.
Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the world, protected by a military force known as Choppers. The rest of Britain believes that the city is now a toxic, uninhabited wasteland.

But Jack and his friends--some of whom lost family on what has become known as Doomsday--know that the reality is very different. At great risk, they have been gathering evidence about what is really happening in London-and it is incredible. Because the handful of London's survivors are changing. Developing strange, fantastic powers. Evolving.

Upon discovering that his mother is still alive inside London, Jack, his sister, and their three friends sneak into a city in ruins. Vast swathes have been bombed flat. Choppers cruise the streets looking for survivors to experiment upon. The toxic city is filled with wonders and dangers that will challenge Jack and his friends ... and perhaps kill them. But Jack knows that the truth must be revealed to the outside world or every survivor will die.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-Ever since the terrorist attack on London two years earlier, life has been anything but normal for 17-year-old Jack and his younger sister, who live on the outskirts of the city. With their parents presumed dead, Jack has had to grow up fast and learn how to care for Emily. His friends, Lucy-Anne, Sparky, and Jenna, also experienced loss in some form. The government insists that the city is a wasteland, full of mutant monsters, and that access in and out is strictly denied. The friends don't believe the government's lies, so when an older woman, Rosemary, comes looking for them, claiming to be from inside London, they feel compelled to follow her back in to see for themselves the reality of the situation. What they experience is far more terrifying and bizarre than they had imagined. Some inhabitants did survive and they developed special powers and skills. Always on the run, the survivors are hunted by the vicious Choppers, who conduct brutal experiments on them when captured. Jack and his friends must first stay alive and then figure out how to tell the truth to the rest of the world. This is the first title in what promises to be a gripping series depicting a near-future England in the throes of a postapocalyptic disaster. Lebbon tells a grim tale, made a bit lighter by the well-developed friendship among the teens and the devoted relationship between Jack and his sister.-Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.
