My son was telling me about a book that he read last year in class that had a picture of a bee on the cover, but where its abdomen is a syringe (with the needle in place of a stinger). It was kind of post-apocalyptic where people were being driven insane by bee stings or something. Somehow he's not even sure of the major plot points. :)

Anyway, we would like to figure out the title and author of this book. Apparently it is fairly recent, and a second book in the series was released this year.


I suspect that the book is Stung, by Bethany Wiggins. The book is about people who are driven to violent madness by bio-engineered bee stings. The cover art matches your description exactly.

Cover of *Stung*

It sounds like an interesting book; I'll have to check it out.

The second book in the series is titled Cured, and was published in March.
