Seventeen-year-old Cardinal has escaped the virus that ravaged his town, leaving its victims alive but without their memories. Choosing to remain in the quarantined zone, he cares for a group of orphaned kids in a mountain camp with the help of the former brutal school bully, now transformed by the virus into his best friend. But then a strong-willed and mysterious young woman appears, and the closed-off world Cardinal has created begins to crumble.

A thrilling, fast-paced work of speculative fiction for teens from a bestselling author, Black River Falls is an unforgettable story about survival, identity, and family.

    Roland Smith, New York Times bestselling author

  • “In this fast-paced novel, Hirsch has created a terrifying reality that explores identity, memory, morality, and what it means to be a family…Through strong characters and thoughtful plotting, Hirsch shows that memory helps define who we are but isn’t the sole component of what makes us human.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hirsch allows the backstory to unfold slowly, salting clues as to Card’s family and his former relationship with Greer. But he also interjects a sweet love story and tricky ethical and moral decisions throughout this thought-provoking novel of family and survival—and superhero comics.”
