Day 137 - Waiting on Wednesday [9]

I found this while browsing through harperteen. The premise does sound interesting and definitely made me wonder what life would be like without medical care or medicine for that matter - very painful I would think! Also the authors are a mother/daughter team and I just love that.

Prism :: Faye & Aliza Kellerman


Prism takes us to a slightly alternate universe in which medicine and health care do not exist, and in which sick people are allowed to die without any care. Set in New Mexico and California, the novel features three teens who fall through a cave at Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico while on a field trip. They are plunged into a frightening parallel universe—seven weeks in the past, in which their "normal" worlds of family and high school remain the same…except for the fact that no medicine exists and when people die in the street they are picked up and disposed of.

Prism will be released June 23rd.

I like the sound of this one, I've read a few Faye Kellerman novels which have been ok reads but I usually enjoy Jonathan Kellerman's more. Looking forward to hearing what you think.
