THE WAY WE FALL by Megan Crewe

Kaelyn had vowed to make this year in high school different.  She promised herself she would make more friends and get involved, but she never had the chance.  Little did she know that her world was about to become a very scary place.

Living on an island means isolation, but when people began getting sick, Kaelyn's island world becomes isolated from the mainland in an effort to contain what might turn out to be an epidemic.  It starts with an uncontrollable itching sensation and is followed by sneezing and coughing.  Within a few days those who suffer from the illness experience bouts of craziness and uncontrollable rage quickly followed by death.

Kaelyn's father is spending most of his time at the hospital trying to isolate the cause and create a vaccine in hopes of stopping the spread of the disease.  Kaelyn is left at home to care for her young niece whose father was one of the early victims.  When Kaelyn's own mother becomes sick, it is clear that they all may be at risk.

THE WAY WE FALL is the first book in the Fallen World trilogy by Megan Crewe.  The close knit island community hit by an unexplained virus struggles to survive as help from the mainland dries up.  Once a group of residents who worked together and pitched in to help, the people are now only concerned with avoiding the virus and saving themselves.
