About

Overview

A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
A V. I. Warshawski Novel

In the summer of 1962, the possibility of nuclear war is all anyone talks about. But Scott’s dad is the only one in the neighborhood who actually prepares for the worst. As the neighbors scoff, he builds a bomb shelter to hold his family and stocks it with just enough supplies to keep the four of them alive for two critical weeks. In the middle of the night in late October, when the unthinkable happens, those same neighbors force their way into the shelter before Scott’s dad can shut the door. With not enough room, not enough food, and not enough air, life inside the shelter is filthy, physically draining, and emotionally fraught. But even worse is the question of what will — and won’t — remain when the door is opened again.

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Strasser once again combines terrific suspense with thoughtful depth . . . This riveting examination of things important to a boy suddenly thrust into an adult catastrophe is un-put-down-able.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
