Tucker Pierce lives with his family on Pemberwick Island with his family.  His dad has a landscaping business where Tucker helps out.  Tucker is on the football team but is a bench warmer and he is good with that.  When the star running back can no longer play Tucker is called up.  Mysteriously the island is quarantined by the U.S. Navy Tucker suspects something isn’t quite right. An elite group of the military called SYLO has taken over the island as people start to die and all communication is cut off.  Tucker meets Tori, a local island girl, and together they try to put a stop to the things SYLO is doing.  They get captured and uncover secrets.  What is SYLO?  Who on the island can they trust?  Can they get help?
Action is the thing that makes this book go.  Right from the first chapter there is a lot going on.  A fun and exciting book that will draw boy readers in.
