The Eleventh Plague
By Jeff Hirsch
A teenager named Stephen Quinn grew up as a salvager in wasteland once known as the United States. A disease that they call The Eleventh Plague, or P11 for short, spread throughout the world causing injuries and deaths. The whole world became a wasteland with all of the power going out, houses and buildings being abandoned, and people dying every second. Stephen and his dad use all of their effort to do whatever it takes to stay alive. One day, Stephen's dad gets a head injury that puts him in a coma. Stephen then has to look out for himself and his dad who is now hopeless. Stephen is seen with his dad after the accident and is taken back to a small town that is safe. Stephen thinks it's too good to be real, but then trouble begins in the town.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 star rating and I recommend this book to teenagers who like survival and adventure. It crosses through having to survive an empty wasteland to running for your life. It teaches good lessons on weather to fight for yourself, your family, or your love.
The Hunger Games
Instead of being put out in an area to fight for your life, in The Eleventh Plague that's just how there life is. In both books you are trying to survive using natural resources and hoping everything goes your way.
Divergent is similar to the Hunger games, in Divergent the main difference is there is a female protagonist leading the story, and in The Eleventh Plague it's a male protagonist.
The Maze Runner
The main difference in the Maze Runner is that they are stuck in a maze and have to fight and survive there way out. Both books include survival, risks, and challenges, just different settings.
