The final exam is survival.

Without warning, a horrifying infection spreads across school grounds, and a group of students with little in common will find themselves barricaded in a classroom, fighting for their lives.

Some will live.

Some will die.

And then it will get even worse.

Fast-paced and frightening, Silver is a tale set on the fringes of science and horror — a story about the struggle to survive in the face of impossible odds.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Silver:

* "A horror/survival story that would make William Golding and Gary Paulsen envious." —Booklist, starred review

"[A] tense page-turner . . . all kinds of white-knucle fun." —Kirkus

"While he plays with zombie tropes, [Wooding's] science-fiction twist allows for an exciting, unpredictable, and unsettling story." —Publishers Weekly

"...But for fans of the horror genre, this fast-paced, occasionally gory tale may well satisfy." —Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books
