A lone boy in a town of violent men with a frightening secret, a beguiling silence in the forest amidst intensely audible thoughts everywhere else, and a race against death make for a gripping fantasy. Todd Hewitt is the only boy in town, where all the women were killed off by the bug that allows for everyone to hear each other's thoughts, including the animals. As his coming-of-age nears, Todd discovers the horrifying truth and flees, along with his dog, and meets a girl whose thoughts he can not hear. The trio find themselves on the run, struggling to survive while being hunted to keep the town's savage secret safe. The first in the Chaos Walking series.


"Todd's colloquial voice is by turns defensive, belligerent, innocent, and desperate; the strength of his point of view and the subtle world-building contained in it make this series opener as promising as it is provocative." 11/1/2008

"The nicely balanced mix of coming-of-age novel, science-fiction adventure, and dystopic thriller will make this an appealing choice for a range of genre readers." 10/1/08
