The Rains by Gregg Andrew Hurwitz

Creek’s Cause is like most small towns, everyone knows each other relatively well and nothing seems to happen without the whole town finding out. When an asteroid falls in one of the local farmer’s field, it’s big news, and when the weeds start to grow from the same spot almost the whole town comes out to take a look. Then one night not long after the weeds start to wither the entire town is infected with spores, all the people over the age of 18 are turned into zombie like hosts for an unknown parasitic entity. The adults start attacking the kids and dragging them off to who knows where.

Chance and Patrick Rain run into more then a few infected adults well trying to escape their own farm and make their way to town. Once there, the small group they have assembled realizes the town is over run with ferocious, inhuman beings and the only safe place to hide out is the school, where they find other young survivors. With Patrick’s 18th birthday only days away and the realization that everyone that turns eighteen is transformed into one of those creatures it’s a race against time to find a solution before Patrick becomes one of them.

If you like fast paced young adult dystopian novels this book is for you!
