After China unleashes what is dubbed the Eleventh Plague, or P11, the United States has collapsed and all that is left are salvagers roaming in tiny groups, slavers searching for people to kidnap, loosely affiliated military groups, and small settlements where people try to recreate what they remember from before the Collapse. Stephen is part of a salvager family now made up of just himself and his father. After a freak accident gravely injures his father, Stephen joins a small settlement, but is very distrustful and always wants to run.
Slowly, Stephen discovers that there are others like him, bearing the scars of their dystopian world. The Eleventh Plague is a story of friendship and the invisible chains that bind us to others and finding your own path and not always doing what others expect you to do. The book is an easy, quick read. There are a few twists and turns here and there making it very hard to put it down. I loved it!
