Canadian Books Don't Get Enough Buzz

The Fallen World trilogy by Megan Crewe is fantastic. As are many Canadian YA books (Courtney Summers anyone?) so let me introduce you to this wonderful series:
It starts with an itch you just can’t shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you’ll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.
And then you’re dead.
When sixteen-year-old Kaelyn lets her best friend leave for school without saying goodbye, she never dreams that she might not see him again. But then a strange virus begins to sweep through her small island community, infecting young and old alike. As the dead pile up, the government quarantines the island: no one can leave, and no one can come back.
Those still healthy must fight for the island’s dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.
The first book is told through journal entires, but that’s just the beginning. This series takes us through the East Coast of Canada to Toronto. It’s a great apocalyptic thriller in a world where something like this could really happen. Love, drama, a girl trying to save the world, this book’s got it all. So what are you waiting for?
The third book just came out a couple of weeks ago and I’m reading it now. I know I’ll be sad to see this series end, but it comes with the chance to meet Megan. She’ll be having a book release party on March 8 in Toronto and I highly recommend you take this opportunity to see her!
