I really enjoyed this dystopian book. America is divided into zones with a huge "salt line" cutting it off from the western states. However, there are people living on the other side of that line. A fact that a group of folks on an "expedition" to the outer zone discover. Unfortunately, for them, those people are not always nice.
Everyone "out of zone" wears suits that cover their whole body. There are miner ticks out there that burrow into your skin and multiply rapidly. It's a sure death if the tick isn't removed immediately.
This was a good read for me. Unfortunately, it was written so well, that I was seeing ticks, okay maybe just black spots, everywhere I looked. HA!!
I sped through this thriller that I found well written with good character development.
