The Cure by Hannah Holmes

Adeline traced a path on top of the wall with her feet, like an artist tracing a picture. Her mother had told her about artists. Mama said that you had to be safe to have time for that.

Adeline and her mother didn’t have time to do anything but survive. No one did, in this city. Maybe there were still artists in other cities, ones not under Quarantine. Mama didn’t think other cities were under Quarantine. Theirs only was because of Eric. Other people called him Mr. Sarento, or even Senator Sarento, but Mama only ever called him Eric. Adeline couldn’t remember a time before him, a time before Quarantine.
