Fifteen-year-old Hester’s reeling from the worst summer of her life. Her mother’s firming up a relationship with Father Dan (pastor and wife-stealer extraordinaire), her best friend wants more from her than just friendship, and—worst of all—her family lost the lawsuit they’d brought against the Havemeyer Pharmaceutical Company for providing Hester’s father with the drugs that eventually killed him.
And the worst is yet to come. The new high school principal Rick Shane is planning to reopen Havemeyer. And he’s got all kinds of great things planned for the school’s social outcasts. When Hester’s two best friends Kyle and Emily are caught up in Shane’s seductive spell, it’s up to her to free them. Before Shane—and the “miracle drug” he’s concocted—costs them their lives.
It's been seven months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. It happens in one night: a girl who died now walks among the living; Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach; and amid the flames and smoke, Sam sees the figure of the boy he fears the most: Drake. But Drake is dead—or so they thought.
Perdido Beach burns and battles rage: Astrid against the Town Council; the Human Crew versus the mutants; and Sam against Drake, who is back from the dead and ready to finish where he and Sam left off. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ, but are the kids of Perdido Beach desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?
