9781501227233: Fallout

It’s the summer of 1962, and Scott and his friends spend their days playing baseball and thinking about girls. But the threat of nuclear war looms over everything they do, and they are haunted by the idea that they could all be dead tomorrow.

Even though the possibility of war is all anyone talks about, Scott’s dad is the only one in the neighborhood who actually prepares for the worst, building a bomb shelter to protect his family and stocking it with enough supplies to keep them alive for two critical weeks. The neighbors scoff, but then, in the middle of the night in late October, the unthinkable happens. Suddenly ten people are crammed into a shelter built for four. Ten people eating the food meant for four, breathing the air meant for four. Ten people struggling to survive—but what will await them when they eventually emerge?

Internationally bestselling author Todd Strasser has written his most impressive and personal novel to date, painstakingly yet sensitively exploring the terrifying what-ifs of one of the most explosive moments in history.

About the Author :

Todd Strasser is the internationally bestselling author of numerous books for children and teens, most notably the classics The Wave and Give a Boy a Gun, which are taught in classrooms around the world. While many of his novels are based on or inspired by events in his own life, Fallout — his 100th original novel — is an especially personal story. “We were indeed the only ones in the neighborhood with a bomb shelter,” he says. “This novel can be read as a memoir, both of what happened during that time and of what I feared would happen.” Todd Strasser lives in New York.

From School Library Journal :

Gr 6 Up—In October of 1962, the unthinkable happens. As sirens warning of a nuclear attack sound through the night, Scott, his brother, and their parents rush into the fallout shelter that his father built over the summer. But they weren't expecting their neighbors to come scrambling in after them, demanding shelter as well. Now 10 people are crammed in a space meant for four with limited food, water, and other necessary supplies. As they argue, plan, and wonder what awaits them above ground, Scott remembers the events of the one golden summer before the attack. Narrator Jeff Cummings attempts to read the story with moderate success, though his voice for Scott makes the boy sound younger than his age. His female voices aren't much better. The story alternates chapters between life in the shelter and Scott's memories, but without clear distinctions designating which is which, giving the story a disjointed, confusing feel and causing it to lose much of the tension it might have in written form. Certain aspects are appropriate for tweens, though the story may be better appreciated by young teens. Only purchase where the book is popular.—Necia Blundy, formerly Marlborough Public Library, MA
