“People don’t just create diseases to wipe out nations,” I argue.

Overview

“People don’t just create diseases to wipe out nations,” I argue.

“The bubonic plague, typhoid fever, smallpox, the bird flu—would you like me to continue?” His voice rises as if he’s determined to make me understand, “They’re created in labs, then given to people to see who is strong enough to survive them. They’re trying to limit the amount of people in the world.” I watch him stand and turn for the door. “There’s a lot about your parents that you don’t know and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you can start doing something about it.”

About Deviations
From the day we’re born, we’re introduced to the marvels of modern medicine. It is amazing how a simple vaccine can prevent polio, hepatitis B, rotavirus—the list is almost endless. But, what if that were no longer the case? What if the government unleashed each virus for the sole purpose of controlling the population? Henly Sawyer finds herself discovering this truth for the first time, and as she does, the world that she thought she knew shatters. She wakes in Aurora, a quarantine miles from home, and is forced into a grueling reality. Henly strives to piece together the truth about her parents and their involvement in the unfolding chaos. With the help of her new friends, Renner and Dex, Henly sets out to understand a world that is now filled with Deviations—an infected group of violent, murderous humans.

Meet the Author

So a little bit about me...I'm an avid pinner, addicted to reading and writing, and currently trying to survive motherhood. Let's face it I have a strange addiction to Root Beer, and girl scout thin mints. If I could I would spend my entire day locked in a closet with a flashlight if that meant I could read a book from start to finish. But lets get serious... I graduated from BYU-I with a BA Degree in Political Science and a minor in English. Along the way I acquired a pretty amazing husband who has helped me create and realize so many dreams. Who knows how many times he's reminded me that I need to sleep to continue living. I also have a baby boy who fits perfectly with his name Cash. Right now I reside in Canada and besides the rainy month (June) I love it. I've learned that every single experience that I've had has helped me create and develop my writing. Every single one of my choices has lead me to this. I would like to believe that I was 'destined' to be a writer because ever since I can remember I've loved it, but in reality it's something that I have worked really hard for.

I really like this book. I reccommend this to girls 13+ who like apocoliptic action-filled romances. I liked that the romance wasn't the main problem

This book had me hooked from the beginning, it jumps right into the action! From beginning to end you won't be able to stop reading. I highly recommend it! There plenty of plot twists to keep it interesting!!!

I don't usually read YA books, but this one was good. The action was well placed, and the story was exceptional and almost believable. If I had to compare it to other books I've read I would have to compare it to The Hunger Games and Walking Dead, but only because of the interest of the plot and the action. GREAT read!!!

I loved Deviations. The story jumps quickly into the action and plot, but you still get to know the main character, Henly, and grow attached to her. Henly is very relatable and likeable, and you root for her the whole way. There is a lot of great action in the story and I loved the detail of Henly and her friends surviving and fighting in this unique post-apocalyptic world, as well as the dynamic of her family life. I also couldn’t get enough of the little bit of romance that ensues - very tastefully done but definitely leaves you on the edge of your seat. I honestly cannot wait for a second book!
