When fifteen-year-old Adam Dawson looks into your eyes, he can see the date of your death. It is a curse he inherited from his mom, Jem Marsh, who died of cancer when he was eight. Because of the rising oceans, Adam and his great-grandmother Nan have been forced to leave their seaside apartment in Weston and relocate to Kilburn in West London. During his travels, he looks into the eyes of many people and realizes that approximately one-third of them will die on January 1, 2027 or soon afterwards. At school, Adam meets Sarah Harrison who experiences nightmares of an impending disaster. Together, they must try to evacuate London before three million people die!

From official release/information:

Product Description: The curse of the NUM8ERS continues in Rachel Ward's CHA0T1C, earth-shattering sequel!

Adam has more than inherited his mother's curse: When he looks in someone's eyes, he not only sees the date of their death...he feels the searing, shocking pain of it. Since Jem died, Adam has lived by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But when rising tides flood the coast, they return to London. The city is an alien, exciting, frightening place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day. What chaos awaits the world? Can he and Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?
