The wand part doesn't quite click, but the rest of it--especially the submarine--might be Shade's Children, though I guess the overall scenario might fit a lot of YA books out there.

Now I'm curious about what you're thinking of!

Good lord, yes! I love this series so much. I also liked Shade's Children

Shade's Children
From what I remember, the plot was basically that some sort of apocalyptic 'event' had occured, leaving only those 14 and younger alive. (Four?) dictator types moved in and started harvesting the kids for their body parts to sew into creatures who fought war games for them. The book follows a group of kids that have escaped capture, and have developed unique special abilities from the 'event'.

Found it in the young adult section years ago, and needless to say it was nothing like I had read before at that age.

I'm pretty sure this isn't your book, but there is a character in Shade's Children who can see into the very near future -- like moments away. If I recall, his name is Gold-Eye. There is also a scene in a bus, but I don't think it's moving anywhere. There are no zombies (which is why it's probably not your book), but there are weird mutant creatures.

Would it be Shade's Children by Garth Nix?

I vividly remember the part about the kids getting paired off each night. I think the goal was to repopulate the movement or something?
