Annotation:
In Scott Westerfeld's tense sequel to PEEPS, as New York City--and the whole world-- falls into a dizzying disarray due to savage attacks from deep in the earth, a gang of teens is desperately trying to form a band. The wealthy and talented Pearl is the leader, while his boyhood friends, Moz and Zahler, are along for the ride. But their lead singer, Min, has a deadly, terrifying power that stirs people more deeply than they even understand. Will this be the band's unraveling, or will it be what saves the world from total destruction? Though a host of new characters might be confusing at first to fans of PEEPS, this young-adult novel returns to familiar plotlines in due course.

Praise

"Less startling and revelatory than PEEPS; a broader, lateral look at the same world, with suspense, touches of humor and eminently appealing characters." 08/01/2006
