"The best high-concept YA thriller of the year is this paranoia-soaked novel in which an infected Colorado high school is quarantined by the government, leading to various cliques that transform into warring tribes. Gritty and fearless." - Booklist"... (a) high-concept mashup, tossing Walter Hill's The Warriors into a high school setting and seeding it with elements of Lord of the Flies." - Publishers Weekly
"Quarantine thrives on themes of human nature and an ultra-realistic tone. Unpredictable, gory, and full of death and despair, this story is not for the light-hearted." - VOYA
"This Hunger Games-esque novel is one of the best books that I have ever read." - Huffington Post Books
