This is the first book in a series of three. The second book is "Prodigy" and the third is "Champion." In this series, it is a about a boy who lives in the slums, he takes care of his younger brother and has an older sibling. Unfortunately these people live in a post-apocalyptic world. Half of the U.S. is underwater, and a disease spreads. His younger brother gets this disease. Along the way to save his brother, he meets a girl. But things do not seem to go his way. I recommend this book, I really enjoyed the story, and the adventure.
