But when his dad goes missing, Kobi follows his trail--and discovers a conspiracy even deadlier than the Waste itself. Non stop action, chilling dangers, and edge-of-your-seat twists make this gripping, fast-paced read perfect for young readers who love survival adventures like Gary Paulsen's Hatchet and dystopian series like Jeanne DuPrau's City of Ember." --
