Deep in the Kalahari Desert, a Corpus lab protects a dangerous secret…

But what happens when that secret takes on a life of its own?

 

When an educational safari goes wrong, five teens find themselves stranded in the Kalahari Desert without a guide. Its up to Sarah, the daughter of zoologists, to keep them alive and lead them to safety, calling on survival know-how from years of growing up in remote and exotic locales. Battling dehydration, starvation and the pangs of first love, she does her best to hold it together, even as their circumstances grow increasingly desperate.

 

But soon a terrifying encounter makes Sarah question everything shes ever known about the natural world. A silver lion, as though made of mercury, makes a vicious, unprovoked attack on the group. After a narrow escape, they uncover the chilling truth behind the lions silver sheen: a highly contagious and deadly virus that threatens to ravage the entire area—and eliminate life as they know it.

 

In this breathtaking new novel by the acclaimed author of Origin and Vitro, Sarah and the others must not only outrun the virus, but its creators, who will stop at nothing to wipe every trace of it.

Synopsis:

Robie is an experienced traveler. Shes taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, theres a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesnt panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft.

And then . . . shes in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and thats when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But theres no sign of help on the way.

The Raft is a thrilling novel of survival from award-winning author S.A. Bodeen.

OH MY GOSH! I absolutely love this book. I Was looking for the book Fallout and saw that Bodeen has written another book. I picked not expecting to like it but I was so wrong. Every page I read I was pulled deeper and deeper into the book. I could not put down this book. This is now one of my favorite books, and I am looking forward to reed it again. This is an amazing book and I think that everyone should reed this book especially if you have read The Compound and really liked, even if you didn't like it you would like The Raft.
