A Great Summer Reading Choice!

Status: Bookseller Picks


A great story of what could have been (and could still be) America, written fifty years ago but more relevant than ever.  It's the story of a small town whose residents are the victim of a nuclear bomb and their struggle to survive in the aftermath.


I first read this as required reading in the 9th grade.  I admit, I wasn't looking forward to it--I hated summer reading--but once I started this book I just couldn't put it down, and over time it's made its way into my all-time favorites.   I recommend it to every single customer who has it listed as a choice on their summer reading lists.  I reread it every couple of years or so and it's just as entertaining and enjoyable each time as it was the first.  You'll get sucked into Randy's world and be absorbed by the many unique characters involved.  I can't say enough about it!
