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.

Book Readers Review
Deviations by Crystal C. Johnson is a thriller, mystery, Sic-Fi and touch of romance, with the theme of medical population control. The story is skillfully written, lots of action and well developed characters. I do not usually read Sci-Fi and did not realize Deviations had this component until nearly half way in my reading. The reader is drawn into the story through Henly's fight to survive and the involvement of her family and friends. Many twists and turns keep you wondering how much more Henly and the group can endure. The author's ability to peek my imagination with her words and descriptive writing was a bonus. Johnson's story keeps you involved throughout. The ending was a surprise. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.
