9780062118547: Wanderers (Wasteland)

The Emmy Award nominee and Edgar Award-winning duo return readers to the postapocalyptic teen world, the Wasteland, in this thrilling sequel. Bestselling author of Criminal, Karen Slaughter, called Wasteland "a Lord of the Flies for future generations. An irresistible page-turner."

The former citizens of Prin are running out of time. The Source has been destroyed, so food is scarcer than ever. Tensions are rising . . . and then an earthquake hits.

With heart-pounding adventure and suspense, the stakes are even higher for Esther, Caleb, and the rest of their clan. They're pinning all their hopes on the road . . . but what if it's the most dangerous place of all?

From the Back Cover:

The source has been destroyed. Food is scarce. Tensions are rising. Then the earthquake strikes.

Esther and Caleb hit the road, leading a ragtag caravan. Their destination? A mythical city where they hope to find food and shelter . . . not to mention a way to make it past age nineteen.

On the way, alliances and romances blossom and fracture as the group faces vicious gangs, violent weather, and more variants. Esther must rally to take charge, accepting the help of a blind wilderness guide, Aras. He seems unbelievably cruel, but not everything is what it appears to be. . . .

When the former Prin citizens reach safety, their new home is as perfect as they imagined. But it's also far more dangerous than they could have ever feared.

Welcome back to the Wasteland.

About the Author:

Susan Kim & Laurence Klavan cowrote the graphic novels City of Spies and Brain Camp.

Susan is also a five-time Emmy nominee for her work in children's television and a Writers Guild Award winner for best documentary. She wrote the stage adaptation of Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club, teaches writing at Goddard College, and is a blogger for the Huffington Post. When she was growing up, her family moved a lot, and the combination of being a) shy, b) the constant new kid, and c) the only Asian meant she was often picked on. In Guardians, she explores her thoughts and feelings about not just bullies but how others deal with them . . . and learn to stand up for themselves.

Laurence has also written the novels The Cutting Room, The Shooting Script, and the Edgar Award-winning Mrs. White and a short-story collection, The Family Unit and Other Fantasies. He received two Drama Desk nominations for the book and lyrics to Bed and Sofa, a musical produced by New York's Vineyard Theatre. Laurence was the baby in his family, the youngest of four brothers; even his twin brother was two minutes older. He learned that having little expected of you can be a source of power. So does Esther in Guardians: she has to finally accept being a leader of people before it's too late. She is sixteen, after all.
