The Lives We Lost by Megan Crewe

First, the virus took Kaelyn’s friends. Then, her family. Now it’s taken away her home.


But she can't look back—the life she once had is gone forever.


A deadly virus has destroyed Kaelyn’s small island community and spread beyond the quarantine. No one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a vaccine in her father's abandoned lab, she knows there must be someone, somewhere, who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the mainland, they encounter a world beyond recognition. It’s not only the “friendly flu” that’s a killer—there are people who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the vaccine. How much will Kaelyn risk for an unproven cure, when the search could either destroy those she loves or save the human race?

Megan Crewe's second volume in the Fallen World trilogy is an action-packed journey that explores the resilience of friendship, the ache of lost love, and Kaelyn’s enduring hope in the face of the sacrifices she must make to stay alive.


Kaelyn has returned in the sequel to The Way We Fall, picking up the story with Leo's return, the island on the verge of being wiped off the map, and news from the deteriorating mainland... The virus has spread.

Kaelyn is mourning and Drew is still missing, when Kaelyn discovers something that may change the world. Forced to flee to the mainland in search of a hospital or research centre, the group quickly discovers that the world is now quiet and unsafe. With vigilante groups gunning them down, can they find help in time... Before the virus claims one of their own.
Absolutely brilliant. Not often do we have the pleasure of reading a sequel that outshines it's predecessor, but it is pure genius from cover to cover.

I can't figure out why this series isn't more popular, I would even go as far to say that I enjoyed it more so than The Hunger Games. The story flows and there are no awkward lulls I'm the action. If you love basic young adult end of the world type books, this series will keep you well entertained.
