Can't Think of The Name

There is a book I can't remember the name of. It is about a bunch of teenagers who almost die because a bunch of terrorists poison the water supply. There is also a kid from Afghanistan who is a computer hacker who comes over to work the government. Please help!

"Fire Will Fall" by Carol Plum-Ucci

"ShadowStrike poisoned the water of Trinity Falls two months ago. Now the Trinity Four, the teens most affected by the poison, have been isolated in a remote mansion, under twenty-four-hour medical care while scientists on four continents rush to discover a cure. Meanwhile, U.S. operatives scour the world for the bioterrorists responsible for this heinous crime, as two teen virtual spies, also infected, hunt for the criminals on the Internet. The danger remains real—for ShadowStrike has every reason to pursue the Trinity Four, and their evil plan will unleash a new designer virus that’s even deadlier than the first."

 

"It's spring of 2002, and the horrendous images of 9/11 remain all too vivid. But terrorism has struck again, in sleepy Trinity Falls, N.J., where the water supply was poisoned, killing two and harming many more. Four teens were severely sickened but are on the slow road to recovery, cared for by special medical teams and security agents in a safe house near the Jersey Shore. On Long Island, two talented young hackers continue to trace terrorist chatter, trying to track down the original culprits, who are all too clearly still active and intent on destroying America's sense of security. The terrorists are closer than anyone would have thought, and they have their sights set on the now famous Trinity Four. Whom can these kids trust? This sequel to the outstanding Streams of Babel (2008) more than lives up to its predecessor's standard. A taut read, it's hard to put down, with characters readers will care about and plenty of momentum. Humor is deftly woven into both character development and dialogue, lightening the mood at just the right spots. A must-read, all-too-contemporary page-turner"

Whatever you do, don't drink the water.

When Cora Holman's mother dies, she assumes the inevitable: that her mother overdosed on the painkillers she'd been taking for years. So she's shocked to learn that her mother and a neighbor both died of a brain aneurysm the same night. When Cora and other neighborhood teens become ill with a mysterious flu, and government-type strangers arrive in her small town, they all fear the unthinkable—a terrorist attack.

Meanwhile, a world away in Pakistan, a sixteen-year-old computer genius named Shahzad is working as a virtual spy. He's alarmed to see an influx of chatter about a sub-stance called Red Vinegar that will, as he reads, "lead to many deaths in Colony One."
