Summary, etc.:
A mysterious immune disorder has begun to afflict the young. When Sophie Perella's little sister, Kira, is diagnosed, their mother takes the girls to Oxford, England, to live with their Aunt Irene. An Oxford University professor and historical epidemiologist, Irene works with a centre that specializes in treating people with the illness. She offers Sophie a window into a strange and ancient history of human plague and recovery. When Kira succumbs, Sophie faces an unimaginable choice: let go of the sister she knows, or take action to embrace something terrifying and new.
