Cured by Bethany Wiggins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Now that Fiona Tarsis and her twin brother, Jonah, are no longer beasts, they set out to find their mother, with the help of Bowen and a former neighbor, Jacqui. Heading for a safe settlement rumored to be in Wyoming, they plan to spread the cure along the way--until they are attacked by raiders. Luckily, they find a new ally in Kevin, who saves them and leads them to safety in his underground shelter. But the more they get to know Kevin, the more they suspect he has ties to the raiders. He also seems to know too many details about Jacqui and her family—details that could endanger them all. For the raiders will do anything they can to destroy the cure that would bring an end to their way of life. Bethany Wiggins’s reimagining of our world after an environmental catastrophe won’t fail to stun readers.
I enjoyed this book much more than the 1st. While the main characters of 'Stung' are part of this story, the are more supporting actors than main characters. The story is about Jack/Jacqui who has lived with her parents and brothers outside of the wall for the last 4 years trying to survive the raiders who have become prevalent since the bee virus. In order to survive Jacqui has to pretend to be a boy. When her older brother Dean leaves to help get Fo's mother to safety and never returns Jacqui decides to go look for help. She enlists the help of Fo, her boyfriend Bowen and her brother Jonah in her search for her brother.
This story was a can't put down read that I finished in one day.
