But when she’s attacked by a crazed man clutching a bloody heart she realizes—there’s a new kind of monster in town.A single drop of blood, and now Mary’s one of the infected. Unless she can stop the virus and save her friends, the new monster in town might just be her.

This is the opening novella to a post-apocalyptic Young Adult series where the runaways are the heroes, the zombies aren’t really zombies, and you can’t trust your memories—even if they’re all you have left.
