About book: This book had me hooked from the beginning and it's one of the best post-apocalyptic books I've read. This book follows the story of a virus being released in the drinking water and the air which wipes out almost the whole worlds population. We follow Lucy, a high school student and her quest to find her family and the answers to whether her father is involved in making the virus. I felt really connected to the characters and I loved reading about Lucy and Grants journey. Couldn't put this down, it was so fast paced and suspenseful and I can't wait to pick up book 2. 4.5 out of 5 stars I've started reading this book a few times during the last year, and every time I never got further then the first chapter. It seemed every time I started, a new book from one of the many ongoing series I'm reading came out. So I'd set it aside and forget about it. Fortunately for me, I read through all the books I'd brought with me on a long road trip, so I pulled out my iPhone, re-downloaded the kindle app, and started reading "The Release" at ten last night. I finished it by nine this morning, and would have finished it even sooner had it not been for this thing called "sleep", something I didn't get a lot of because I couldn't put the book (phone) down.The plot is suspenseful and keeps you guessing to the end. There's plenty of action, but not so much it becomes redundant and boring. I really appreciated the character development, and actually found myself emotionally attached to some of them, unlike some of these other Young Adult books. (The Maze Runner, to name one)I liked how the book takes place during the crisis, not several years after. It was a nice change of pace. All together, I'd say it's definitely one of the better books I've read in a while, somewhere near "The Hunger Games", and "Divergent".So if you're weary about starting another Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic trilogy, worry no more; Unless you hate good writing and an excellent plot, you won't be disappointed!
