Summary from Goodreads:
After a series of blasts force Beatrice Hicks and her family into their prepper bunker, they emerge to discover they are among the survivors of a nuclear apocalypse. Fighting against rogue groups and coping with deaths are just some of the adjustments Beatrice must make to survive, but how will she maintain her humanity after the blast?

Praise for THE BLAST:
“This is the most impressive and heartfelt apocalypse story I’ve ever read in my life!”

“A real tour de force… [It’s] refreshing to have a YA book which focuses on the important things in a person’s life – family, love and death.”

“What a beautiful story. A wonderful look at the human ability to survive, rebuild, and grow through survival.”

“One of the best post-apocalypse stories I have read.”

“This book easily stacks up against my favourites and has an originality that many books seem to lack these days. [The] writing style is impeccable and this book is utterly breathtaking!”

I really enjoyed The Blast. I haven't read many post apocalyptic books like this other than Summer Lane’s Collapse Series that I absolutely adore and I didn't think anything could compare to it. But I did love this book. It is exactly like what I picture a post apocalyptic world would be like.

We get a front row seat of the blast that threw the world back to the “olden days” as we used to say. And then to watch a family survive with the help of neighbors to try and make it through some very trying days after the blast. This book is more than a story about survival. It spans the spectrum of life during the apocalypse, from the difficulties of giving birth during this time to dealing with the deaths of siblings, children and parents and growing up and falling in love.

While I read this book I went through so many different emotions and kept waiting for the roller coaster ride to stop. But like with all greatly written books it didn't come to a complete stop until the very end and Ladies and Gentlemen keep your arms and legs in during the ride. J You will love this book if you like in any way this genre. Grab it now!!
5 Stars!!!
