Fallout (YA)


Book #116 Read in 2014
Fallout by Todd Strasser (YA)

This book takes the premise of a nuclear bomb being dropped in 1962; only Scott's family has built a bomb shelter.  What happens when neighbors want to stay in it too?  Will Scott's father, who took the threat seriously enough to build the shelter, have stocked in adequately in preparation?  What happens when a group of adults and children are stuck in a bomb shelter for a few weeks in close  quarters?  This book reminded me a bit of Lord of the Flies set in a bomb shelter.  It was a good, quick read.  I think this book is more geared towards boys.
