The Yanakakis family is supposed to spend fifteen years in their underground bunker. Six years in, Eli will do anything to get out.

I haven’t been this crept out about milk since Emma Donoghue’s Room. Also awkward: mention of a human host…

A claustrophobic setting with family secrets, a puzzle to solve, and the threat of nuclear annihilation – all at a brisk pace and ideal for anyone looking for a quality teen thriller. The science afoot also contributes to this five-star read. Anyone else feel the need to read Nevil Shute’s On the Beach?
