Stricken

By (author): C.K. Kelly Martin

Naomi doesn’t expect anything unusual from her annual family trip to visit her grandparents in Ireland. What she expects is to celebrate her thirteenth birthday, hang out with her friends Ciara and Shehan, and deal with her gran’s Alzheimer’s. What she finds is a country hit by an unexpected virus that rapidly infects the majority of the Irish population over the age of twenty-one.


Amnestic-Delirium Syndrome (ADS) starts off with memory loss, but the virus soon turns its victims aggravated, blank, or violent. Naomi and her friends must survive on their own, without lucid adults, cut off from the rest of the world, until a cure is found.


But there are whispers that ADS is not terrestrial, and soon Naomi and her friends learn the frightening truth: we are not alone.

Reviews

Stricken takes readers into a world without adults without showcasing the worst in people … It is refreshing to have a book take this approach – people don’t have to be terrible for literature to be interesting, but it is often what happens in plots such as this. By keeping the characters calm and the antagonist something other than human, the appeal of this book is broader than teens looking for a dark adventure. Stricken should appeal across gender and genres.
