Disease is spreading through the streets of Perdido Beach. A cough, a cough that makes you choke up your stomach.

For the moment the Darkness has disappeared and the only sign of its power lies in the basemnet prison where a monster, Drake, is being held. But a new horror is about to infest the FAYZ. Something is growing. Growing inside unsuspecting victims... and eating at them from the inside.

Plague by Michele Grant
Plague is a sc-fi, action and adventure written for teenagers.
Thee story is set perido beach and he describes it as a town with a power plant, a school for kids who's parents rejected them and a beach as well as a lake.
I think the author created variety of interesting, sick and stupid characters, he makes you feel sorry, angry and annoyed at them.

They've survived hunger. They've survived lies. But the stakes keep rising, and the horror keeps building. Despite having had so many battles, power struggles, and angry divides, there is a momentary calm in Perido Beach.
But enemies in the FAYZ don't just fade away, and in the quiet, deadly things are stirring, mutating, and finding their way free. The Darkness has found its way into the mind of nemesis at last and is controlling it through confusion. A highly contagious, fatal illness spreads at an alarming rate. Mutated predatory insects terrorise Perido Beach. And Sam, Astrid, Diana, and Caine are plagued by a growing doubt that they'll escape—or even survive—life in the FAYZ. With so much chaos surrounding them, what desperate choices will they make when it comes to saving themselves and those they love?
I liked the style of writing because you got to see inside a lot of characters heads so it makes the story more interesting. What disappointed me was that in this book there was not much emotion in it.
A phrase I like is
“He didn’t mind Drake so much. Drake was a creep.
It was the girl who made Orc want to cry.
She was a monster. Like Orc. Begging for death. Begging for someone to let her go to her Jesus.
Kill me, kill me, kill me, she begged every day and every night.
Orc took a deep swig.
Tears seeped from his human eyes and fell into the rocky crevices of his face.”
I like it because it makes you think about not judging a book by its cover( a freak has feelings as well

This review is a spoiler. View anyway?

This is a truly amazing book. I haven't read the last book in this series (Fear), but so far this book is my favourite. I would deinitely reccomend it. Read the other books in the series first, though. But Plague has all you need; action, romance, death, and supernatural disease-spreading flying snakes. But, this book is not for the faint-heatred. So basically, don't read this if you don't want to read about bugs eating people from the inside and literally making them cough their guts up.
