Reading Level: Grades 7 & up
Set in a dystopian American, years ago before the story begins a new virus killed millions of people and turned others into half-human, half-animal mutants. The rest of humanity fled and built a wall along the Mississippi River to separate themselves from the "Feral Zone."
When 16-year-old Lane McEvoy learns her father has gone missing, she must enter the forbidden "Feral Zone" to complete a mission that could save his life. Everson, a handsome border guard, and bad boy Rafe accompany Lane her astonishing journey. The characters are multi-faceted and, like all good science fiction, Inhuman raises important questions, namely, what it is to be human or humane. Readers will eagerly await the next two books in the trilogy.
