SYNOPSIS:  “Sixteen-year-old Mia Kish has always been afraid of the dark. After all, she’s baby Mia, the one who fell down a well. That was years ago, though the darkness still haunts her. But when her classmates and teachers at ritzy Westbrook Academy start dying of old age from a bizarre and frightening virus that ages its victims in a matter of hours, Mia becomes haunted by a lot more than the dark. Their deaths are gruesome and Mia worries she and her friends may be next.

In order to survive, Mia and her small crew must break quarantine and outrun armed soldiers in hazmat suits who shoot first and ask questions later.

And there’s only one place to go – the Cave, aka Fenton Electronics. Mia knows it is somehow connected and hopes that her dad, the director of Fenton Electronics, who has always been oddly secretive about his work, has the answers she needs and, more important, a cure to save everyone before the whole town succumbs to the mysterious virus.”
