After a nuclear attack, Eli and his family move underground into the Compound to protect themselves, thinking they’re the sole survivors.

This psychologically thrilling, young adult action and adventure series by author S.A. Bodeen is perfect for fans of YA survival stories and dystopian fiction. “Suspenseful and riveting, this debut novel raises serious issues about what it means to survive.” – Kirkus Reviews
