About The Book:

"People don’t just create diseases to wipe out nations,” I argue. “The bubonic plague, typhoid fever, smallpox, the bird flu—would you like me to continue?” His voice rises as if he’s determined to make me understand, “They’re created in labs, then given to people to see who is strong enough to survive them. They’re trying to limit the amount of people in the world.” I watch him stand and turn for the door. “There’s a lot about your parents that you don’t know and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you can start doing something about it.” About Deviations From the day we’re born, we’re introduced to the marvels of modern medicine. It is amazing how a simple vaccine can prevent polio, hepatitis B, rotavirus—the list is almost endless. But, what if that were no longer the case? What if the government unleashed each virus for the sole purpose of controlling the population? Henly Sawyer finds herself discovering this truth for the first time, and as she does, the world that she thought she knew shatters. She wakes in Aurora, a quarantine miles from home, and is forced into a grueling reality. Henly strives to piece together the truth about her parents and their involvement in the unfolding chaos. With the help of her new friends, Renner and Dex, Henly sets out to understand a world that is now filled with Deviations—an infected group of violent, murderous humans.

What readers have said about the book:
"The novel Deviations by Crystal C. Johnson is an unpredictable journey that brings you through very relatable experiences. Through the excitement and comedy found throughout, it is impossible to put down. Through the characters Crystal has been able to relate to her readers with the realistic feelings and actions that they portray. Throughout the entire novel there are countless ingenious surprises that you never see coming. Deviations is the amazing combination of the novels Divergent by Veronica Roth, Maze Runner by James Dashner, Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Matched by Allie Condie."

Born in a small town in Northern Nevada, she grew to love and appreciate the written word.

Who knows how many times he's reminded her that she needs to sleep to continue living. Crystal also has a baby boy who fits perfectly with his name - Cash. Right now she resides in Canada and besides the rainy months she loves it.
