PublisherPutnam Juvenile
Release Date: 03/07/13 

First came the storms.
Then came the Fever.
And the Wall.

After a string of devastating hurricanes and a severe outbreak of Delta Fever, the Gulf Coast has been quarantined. Years later, residents of the Outer States are under the assumption that life in the Delta is all but extinct… but in reality, a new primitive society has been born.

Fen de la Guerre is living with the O-Positive blood tribe in the Delta when they are ambushed. Left with her tribe leader’s newborn, Fen is determined to get the baby to a better life over the wall before her blood becomes tainted. Fen meets Daniel, a scientist from the Outer States who has snuck into the Delta illegally. Brought together by chance, kept together by danger, Fen and Daniel navigate the wasteland of Orleans. In the end, they are each other’s last hope for survival.

Sherri L. Smith delivers an expertly crafted story about a fierce heroine whose powerful voice and firm determination will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.

Why I need it: 
Another dystopian, I know I can't help it, lol. Just a couple of words made me want to read it, fight for survival and quarantinedThe cover is pretty amazing too. The people on Goodreads who have read it have given it 4 out of 5 stars.

That cover is really captivating. A dystopian has to be really good to keep me interested. I may hop on over to Goodreads to check out the reviews.
