No sooner has 15-year-old Lee Keegan been expelled from his private school than a pandemic spreads like wildfire around the globe. With his father dead and mother trapped abroad, Lee is given one instruction: go back to school. But safety and security at St. Mark's School for Boys is in short supply. Its high walls can't stop the local parish council from forming a militia and imposing marshal law, while inside the dorms the end of the world is having a dangerous effect on his best friend and his unrequited crush on the school nurse isn't helping him concentrate on staying alive.

Troublemaker Lee Keegan gets kicked out of an all-boys private school. Soon after, the world is hit with an apocalyptic pandemic and only those who have O neg blood type survive. He goes back to the school to rendezvous with his mother who is trying to journey home.
I have a tough time rooting for anybody other than the nurse. First, the main kid is a brat. He's annoyingly whiney while trying to project boyish charms. His friend is a psychopath. The boys are mostly Lord-of-the-Flies proto-frat-boys. They spend their time drinking rather than preparing for the inevitable attack. Quite frankly, I'm surprised that they didn't rape the paralyzed prisoner. The teacher is pathetic and arrogant. I don't like most of these people. I do like the nurse's final act. I like some of the action. It would help if Lee is a more likeable character.
