The Compound – S.A. Bodeen


Ever since their world was destroyed by a nuclear attack, 15-year-old Eli and his family have lived in the Compound, a state-of-the-art bomb shelter built by his bllionaire father. Despite having every comfort, Eli is haunted by the fact that his twin and his grandmother were left behind. He also begins to question his father’s sanity after an inventory miscalculation threatens their survival, and his dad hatches a morally corrupt plan to “enhance their food supply”. Eli’s worst suspicions are confirmed when he discovers a live internet signal using an old laptop. Did the world really end six years ago? Why else would Eli’s father want to keep his family underground?

This is a chilling book. Eli’s Dad, Mr. Yanakakis, is completely insane and is one of those really quietly creepy guys. This book creeped me out in some parts. It was really good. Try it if you want a thriller!  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
