Newbery Award-winning author Matt de la Pe#65533;a's The Living is "a rare thing: a plot-driven YA with characters worthy of a John Green novel." [ Entertainment Weekly , A-] Shy took the summer job to make some money. In a few months on a luxury cruise liner, he'll rake in the tips and be able to help his mom and sister out with the bills. And how bad can it be? Bikinis, free food, maybe even a girl or two--every cruise has different passengers, after all.    But everything changes when the Big One hits. Shy's only weeks out at sea when an earthquake more massive than ever before recorded hits California, and his life is forever changed.    The earthquake is only the first disaster. Suddenly it's a fight to survive for those left living.    Look for the thrilling sequel, The Hunted , in bookstores now!
