If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you should definitely check out Kathy Reichs' latest book, which is also her first book for a teen audience.
Virals, released in late 2010, is a spinoff of Reich's well-known series — its main character is Tory Brennan, who is the niece of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. In this first book of the series, 14-year-old Tory and her pack of science-geek friends get infected by a mysterious virus that makes them slowly develop wolflike senses. It's a fun story — kind of a cross between a mystery-thriller and a science fiction story, with lots of neat technology, genetically modified DNA, and of course a murder to solve!
Click this link to read a cool interview with the author– she talks about her inspiration for the book, her love of forensic science, and even a sneak peek into the sequel coming out this summer!
It is a sad day for fans of Mossflower Woods!
