After a horrible explosion, Eli and his family are led to an underground compound to wait 15 years until the radiation has died out to make it safe to go above ground again. Eli's twin brother and grandmother did not make it. After six years, Eli starts to realize that something isn't right and starts to investigate their situation. Eli's wealthy father has a lot of secrets to explain.
This was a fun novel to read that sucked you in and took you for a ride in the mind of a tortured 15 year old guy and his mentally deranged father. I enjoyed the suspense and the shock factor of some of the father's ideas on how to survive.
