(From the publisher):
In a plague-decimated future world, people are divided into haves and have-nots, and Jake is definitely a have-not. Abandoned by his mother, Jake must take care of his plague-stricken brother Evan, while trying to stay in high school. Only one ray of hope shines in this bleak world, a strange storyteller who comes on television and tells tales of amazing alien worlds. Propelled by a school assignment, Jake and his friend Mellie must enter a deserted part of the city called the Dead Zone to find the storyteller, but what they find is beyond their wildest expectations, providing new hope, even for Evan.
