This book is absolutely amazing.The book is called The Compound and is written by S.A. Bodeen. This book takes place during a nuclear winter, the period after a nuclear bomb goes off. The books protagonist is a boy named Eli, his world was turned upside down when a nuke (antagonist) is dropped because his grandmother and twin brother don't make it. Eli is upset that the nuke dropped, then is afraid of his own father after six years have past. Eli's father pretty much goes insane, so Eli and the sane side of his family have to get out of the Compound. Will they make it out, or will Eli's father get them all killed? Read to find out. I liked this book so much because I like mysteries and the suspense that comes with them, I just want to know what happens next.
