The Pinocchio SyndromeBook - 2003
In the not-so-distant-future, an ocean liner called the Crescent Queen, carrying a group of American students, is suddenly vaporized by a nuclear weapon. Several months later, a disease crops up in the United States and around the world. With no known cure or treatment, the disease paralyzes its victims and creates terrifying physical deformities that causes it to be called "the Pinocchio Syndrome''.
