What if the bomb had actually been dropped? What if your family was the only one with a shelter?

It’s the summer of 1962, the possibility of nuclear war is all anyone talks about. But Scott’s dad is the only one in the neighborhood who actually prepares for the worst. As the neighbors scoff, he builds a bomb shelter to hold his family and stocks it with just enough supplies to keep the four of them alive for two critical weeks. In the middle of the night in late October, when the unthinkable happens, those same neighbors force their way into the shelter before Scott’s dad can shut the door. With not enough room, not enough food, and not enough air, life inside the shelter is filthy, physically draining, and emotionally fraught. But even worse is the question of what will—and won’t—remain when the door is opened again.

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

Quotes & Awards

    Wall Street Journal

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Strasser brings readers to the 1960s Long Island of his youth, with one crucial difference: in this story, the Cuban Missile Crisis leads Russia to bomb the US…An eye-opening ‘what if’ scenario about the human response to disaster.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Strasser once again combines terrific suspense with thoughtful depth…This riveting examination of things important to a boy suddenly thrust into an adult catastrophe is unputdownable.”
