Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: November 1, 2011
Pages: 352

Summary: Since mankind began, civilizations have always fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs…Now it’s our turn. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening. An ancient evil has been unleashed, turning everday people into hunters, killers, crazies. Mason's mother is dying after a terrible car accident. As he endures a last vigil at her hospital bed, his school is bombed and razed to the ground, and everyone he knows is killed. Aries survives an earthquake aftershock on a bus, and thinks the worst is over when a mysterious stranger pulls her out of the wreckage, but she’s about to discover a world changed forever. Clementine, the only survivor of an emergency town hall meeting that descends into murderous chaos, is on the run from savage strangers who used to be her friends and neighbors. And Michael witnesses a brutal road rage incident that is made much worse by the arrival of the police--who gun down the guilty party and then turn on the bystanding crowd. Where do you go for justice when even the lawmakers have turned bad? These four teens are on the same road in a world gone mad. Struggling to survive, clinging on to love and meaning wherever it can be found, this is a journey into the heart of darkness – but also a journey to find each other and a place of safety.

My Thoughts: Whoa, this sounds so good! I love the whole concept of a town going mad. Yes, it does sound a little bit like the movie, Crazies, but who cares? :) My only complaint is that I have to wait until November! Ahh! Plus, the cover is gorgeous!

Woah, love that cover! If I'm remembering correctly it originally had a different cover image but this one is so much more striking.

Sounds interesting. It reminds me of another movie I saw years ago where the town went crazy because of some toxin that was getting into the cows milk. I can't recall what it was called though.
