General fiction (Children's&YA)
In the violent early days of the quarantine, Gonzalo joins a gang of thieves who live in the ductwork of McKinley High School. There he falls in love with Sasha, but as he grows too big to fit, he is forced to leave without her.

A year later, he scours the infected zone for her. No matter how many murderers, puncture wounds, or militia he has to survive, Gonzalo can't give up on Sasha.

In the fourth installment of the Quarantine series, Lex Thomas delivers two intertwined stories about love and longing, which merge in a conclusion where the fate of the entire infected zone hangs in the balance.

Reviews for Quarantine Book 4: The Giant

This fourth book of the violent, virus-lit Quarantine series tells the story of Gonzalo, the ax-wielding, self-proclaimed 'monster' of McKinley High School, and his girlfriend, Sasha. At 16, scrawny Gonzalo is barely able to fend for himself amid the savage gangs (the Varsities, the Skaters, the Nerds, the Sluts, etc.) that have developed in the school since its quarantine because of a virus that kills adults. Though adults oversee food and supply drops, kids like Gonzalo don't have much chance of surviving long enough to age out of the infection and be released. When Gonzalo is rescued by Sasha, one of the Mice, who live in the ductwork, he falls for her and finally has something to live for. A parallel story follows Gonzalo a year after his graduation as he scours the infected zone for Sasha with his high-school enemy, Baxter, and uncovers a plot to destroy the infected underground. This edgy, explicit novel isn't as hard-hitting or fast-paced as its predecessors, but it's a solid choice for mature readers seeking morally ambivalent, lawless dystopias. --Booklist Online --Website
