Summary

Dad asked me if I wanted to see more of the Compound. I didn't. We would have to wait fifteen years before it would be safe to go outside. Which left more than enough time to see the rest of the Compound.

Our new world. A world I would soon hate.

Eli and his family have lived in the Compound for six years. The world they knew is gone. Eli's father built the Compound to keep them safe. Now, they can't get out.

He won't let them.

Critic reviews

"Suspenseful and riveting, this debut novel raises serious issues about what it means to survive." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"The audience will feel the pressure closing in on them as they, like the characters, race through hairpin turns in the plot toward a breathless climax." ( Publishers Weekly)
