Two years ago, a trendy diet drink called SlimPro left my world in ruins. The Contamination turned people like my mom and dad into violent, shambling creatures. Now, the rehabilitated ones are being sent home with shock collars connected to their brains to control their aggressive impulses.

Or kill them.

My little sister Opal and I are surviving, but every day feels like a battle. And now, things are getting worse. The Sanitarium is taking people away to experiment on them, trying to find a cure. But what if the doctors running the experiments aren’t trying to save us? What if the real threat isn’t the “Connies,” the government, or the doctors?

What if it’s me?

For fans of The Last of Us, The Girl with All the Gifts, and The Forest of Hands and TeethContaminated is a heart-wrenching tale of love and determination, where the power of human connection can mean the difference between life and death.

With reviews like “Alarmingly realistic and absolutely unputdownable” from USA Today best-selling author Jennifer L. Armentrout and “Confession: This book had me crying in public” from award-winning author Jeri Smith-Ready, readers won’t want to miss this riveting and relentless adventure.
