under quarantine after a biochemical terrorist attack, a DC girl knows too much

In this super-plausible barely-sci-fi novel, teenage prep student Bird is under quarantine with the rest of her school in DC after the outbreak of a pandemic started by a biochemical terrorist attack. Bird doesn't know it, but she has information she shouldn't, thanks to her scientist parents, and she's drawn the attention of shadowy government figures who will stop at nothing to uncover the secrets locked inside her head.
 
Full of great characters, a fast-moving plot, a moving romance, and deft commentary on race and class in the nation's capital, this book isn't one to miss.
