A Cure For Madness by Jodi McIsaac

 
About the book
Clare Campbell has worked hard to create distance between herself and her troubled family. But when she receives news of her parents’ murder, she’s forced to return to the quiet town of Clarkeston, Maine, to arrange their funeral and take legal guardianship of her unpredictable and mentally ill brother, Wes.
While Clare struggles to come to grips with the death of her parents, a terrifying pathogen outbreak overtakes the town. She is all too familiar with the resulting symptoms, which resemble those of her brother’s schizophrenia: hallucinations, paranoia, and bizarre, even violent, behavior. Before long, the government steps in—and one agent takes a special interest in Wes. Clare must make a horrifying decision: save her brother or save the world.

My review
Keep an eye out for this author.  You are going to be hearing a lot about her.
Meet this girl.  She has issues.  Mom and pop loved bro better.  Cause he was sick.  He is sick, as a matter of fact.  But she runs.  Away.  As far as she can.  Only to get a call.  She is now her brothers keeper and his insanity promises to keep her life interesting. 
However his insanity is not all that insane.  She did not run purely because she is a brat.  She has a past, one her brother tried to help her with. 
But now her town is going mad.  And her brother may hold the cure.  So she does it again.  Takes the road which will give her a chance to run.  But she cant.  This time she needs to take a stand. 
I loved this book.  Every time you figure you have a handle on one of the main protagonists a new element comes to the fore, adding to them.  Giving them a new breath of life, a new dimension. 
Read this.  It is escapism at it's best.
