No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz

No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz is a very compelling read. It is filled with action and suspense. It is written from the point of views of Marco, Lexi, Ryan, and Shay. They are all at a mall when Marco finds a box that turns out to be a bomb, filled with a deadly flu. The attempt to remove and deactivate the bomb fails. The deadly virus sweeps through the mall, leaving it on lockdown. 

After the mall goes on lockdown everything spirals out of control. The Senator tries her best to keep everyone calm, but how can you stay calm when you are on a lockdown and you don’t know why?

No Safety in Numbers keeps readers on their toes, ready for what happens next. It captures the problems that teenagers face on a daily basis: Shay who wants to escape daily life but has to deal with her younger sister; Ryan who tries to impress a girl; Marco who feels like an outsider; and Lexi who feels like her mom doesn’t know her.

No Safety in Numbers is very action-packed and you might find yourself yelling at certain characters throughout the book. I highly recommend No Safety in Numbers for anyone who wants a suspenseful, enthralling, and thrilling book.
