Wilder Girls by Rory Power

It took me about two seconds to preorder this book when I saw its gorgeous cover on Instagram. Once again, here I was, judging a book by its cover… But the premise of the story was also very intriguing; some kind of sickness has taken over an island and its occupants, a group of teenage girls attending a boarding school. They have to wait, in quarantine, until a cure is discovered. But the “Tox” isn’t any sort of disease… The girls quickly develop malformations and suffer through "flare ups" that distort their bodies and, slowly but surely, turn them into something less and less human. Something wilder.
