What if the bomb had actually been dropped?
In the summer of 1962, the possibility of nuclear war is all anyone talks about, so Scott's dad 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 disaster strikes, the same neighbors who scoffed at building a shelter themselves force their way into the shelter before Scott's dad can close the door.
Bestselling author Todd Strasser has written a novel that explores the terrifying what-ifs of one of the most explosive periods in human history.
