The Boy on the Bridge
M. C. Carey
Pub date: May 2, 2017

I loved this book! I also loved The Girl with All the Gifts too. This a prequel to the second title I listed and just as good as the first book. It appears to take place 20 years or so before TGWATG. For those of you who read the first book, remember they found an RV Named Rosie, well, this group of scientists and crew of military are on the Rosie traveling to see if they can find the reason and cure for “hungries” or (AKA) zombies. Naturally, the scientists and the military have different agendas. Which give the book some intrigue. One of the scientists is pregnant, and in the military group, there is a traitor. There is also a young boy with probably Asperger’s who is incredibly smart and savvy. This spells great a great read, lots of action, and a wonderful ending. I hope that you add this book to your reading list.

Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.

The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.

To where the monsters lived.
