Fallout, by Todd Strasser

FalloutSummary:  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.

One thought on “Fallout, by Todd Strasser

  1. This is an interesting book, but I didn’t like it. The least confusing way to read it seems to be reading every other chapter because the author kept switching between time periods.
