SYLO by D. J. MacHale

While his best friend dreams of leaving someday, Tucker loves his home on little Pemberwick Island, Maine.  All dreams of leaving the island - even for the tourists - end when a military group called SYLO take over and quarantine Pemberwick.  They tell the residents that the island has been hit by a lethal virus and no one is allowed to enter or leave until a cure is found.  But Tucker has seen things that make him question that story including explosions from unidentified flying objects over the ocean late one night.  And how does the Ruby, a mysterious substance that gives the user unlimited energy, figure into what is happening on the island?  SYLO commander Captain Granger isn't saying anything.
