Numbers Book 2: The Chaos (Numbers)by Rachel Ward
Synopses & Reviews
The curse of the NUM8ERS continues in Rachel Ward's CHA0T1C sequel — told in the compelling alternating voices of runaway Sarah and hard-luck Adam.
Adam inherited his mother Jem's curse. With a vengeance. When he stares into someone's eyes, he doesn't just see the date of their death, he feels the searing, shocking pain of it.
Orphaned, Adam has grown up by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But as rising tides flood the coast, they flee to London. The city is an alien, anarchic place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day.
What chaos awaits the world? Can Adam and his damaged friend Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?
"Creepy and original!" — R.L. Stine
"Engrossing and au courant." — The L.A. Times
*Includes a sneak peek at 1NF1N1TY, the end of the trilogy!*
