Teaser Tuesday: The Lives We Lost

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

So my plan for this post was a review of The Lives We Lost, for the Fallen World Street Team, but unfortunately I just received the book today so I haven't had a chance to read it yet (or start it for that matter!) So I'll do the second best thing and tease you all a little with some quotes! This is the second book in the series, the first being The Way We Fall, so if it sounds good, go pick up the first book!
"If I'd had enough blood to give, I would have tried to cure every patient here, but dying in the attempt wouldn't have helped anyone." 
"And outside, the endless wind beat at the walls, and the endless snow rasped against the windows, on and on and on" 
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.
