The Fallout by S.A. Bodeen

The Fallout by S.A. Bodeen

Eli and his family have just gotten out of The Compound where they lived for six years, thinking the world had suffered a nuclear attack.  Eli's father, one of the richest men on earth, tricked the family into a experiment they didn't know they were a part of.  The father didn't make it out alive.  Now they just want to forget and live normal lives.

Eli feels like a freak and is having trouble trusting people.  He feels like he is paranoid yet he has caught people following them.  His twin brother, Eddy, just wants to have fun and his sister, Lexie is crying all the time.  The family is slowly falling apart and their multi-million dollar company is being run by their insane father's trusted man, Phil.  Yikes.

The Fallout is a riveting conclusion to The Compound.  The story line begins right where The Compound left off.  The Fallout is the story of a very rich family whose patriarch thinks he can do anything because he has money and is privileged.  The plot is fast moving and full of twists and turns and plenty of What?! and No!?* and OMG!  It is story that takes you on a wild rollar coaster ride.  Buckle up, cross your fingers and wear your helmet.  Oh and seriously Don't Trust Anyone!  You never know what characters you can trust and I love that!

This is a great book series for Middle and High schoolers.  A quick paced, plot driven story that will  shock them a bit and get them thinking.  Great for boys!!
