The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch
The Eleventh Plague has a little bit of everything: action, adventure (even romance). Based after a man-made apocalypse created by a third world war, a boy and his father roam the U.S. trying to find things to trade for food, water, bullets and other useful items. Constantly running from Chinese soldiers and slavers who, as their name hints, capture people and trade them. Probably for a preteen to teen audience, The Eleventh Plague is a great summer read.
While I thoroughly enjoyed The Eleventh Plague the ending left a little to be desired. Also there were a few grammatical errors that need to be fixed. But other then that it was a great book that I just couldn't put down.
