The Troop by Nick Cutter
Lord of the Flies meets The Ruins in this frightening novel written in the bestselling traditions of Stephen King and Scott Smith

Boy Scouts live by the motto "Be Prepared." However, nothing can prepare this group of young boys and their scoutmaster for what they encounter on a small, deserted island, as they settle down for a weekend of campfires, merit badges, and survival lessons.

Everything changes when a haggard stranger in tattered clothing appears out of nowhere and collapses on the campers' doorstep. Before the night is through, this stranger will end up infecting one of the troop's own with a bioengineered horror that's straight out of the worst nightmares. Now stranded on the island with no communication to the outside world, the troop learns to battle much more than the elements, as they are pitted against something nature never intended... and eventually each other.

"Lean and crisp and over-the-top....Disquieting, disturbing," says Scott Smith, author of The Ruins and Simple Plan, The Troop is a visceral burn of a read that combines boldly drawn characters with a fantastically rendered narrative - a terrifying story you'll never forget.

The Loners by Lex Thomas
It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High - until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.

A year late, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the student are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you're as good as dead. And David had no gang. It's just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school.

In this frighteningly dark and captivating novel, Lex Thomas locks readers inside a school where kids don't fight to be popular, they fight to stay alive.
