Summary In a heavily guarded compound, a small group of children are being studied to discover the cure to a virus that has ravaged the globe. Ten-year-old Melanie and her fellow pupils are second-generation hybrids - part 'Hungry', part human. But unlike first generation 'Hungries', Melanie excels in the classroom, is acutely attentive, imaginative and highly intelligent. When the base is overrun by Hungries, Melanie escapes with her favourite teacher, Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr Caldwell, who is intent on using Melanie to synthesise a vaccine. Bound for a fortress-like enclave where society clings to life, can they survive? Does Melanie hold the key to unlocking a cure for the plague on course to destroy the human race?
