Summary
Four years after a virus wipes out all adults, 13-year-old Anna Salemi spends her days foraging in the ruins of a Sicilian landscape ravaged by fires, looting, and violence. Dogs rove in packs, desperate for food, as do the nearly feral children who've been left behind, untouched by the Red Fever-- until puberty strikes, and they become susceptible to the virus. Anna channels her energy into pursuing one goal: keeping her younger brother, Astor, alive and well. When other kids storm their farmhouse, Anna must choose to either fall into the despair afflicting the other children as they reach the end of their lives, or to strike out for an enigmatic sector known as the Strait in hopes of finding a cure

Summary
It is some years since a virus killed all the adults. Now Sicily lies in ruins while the disease lies in wait, poised to claim the children as they reach adolescence. Brave, stubborn thirteen-year-old Anna looks after her brother Astor in the cottage where their mother's skeleton rests, lovingly decorated, in a locked bedroom. She tells him fearsome stories about monsters, hoping to keep him safe at home while she forages among the real hazards. Wild dogs. Gangs of savage, blue-painted kids. But then Astor starts to question Anna's version of the world, just as the blue kids are turning their attention to the cottage-and suddenly, everything will change
