Great world-building and awesome dual storyline in this post-apocalyptic/renewal & rebuilding type of book.

It's about 35 years after the "Breakdown" (nuclear missiles worldwide, all hell broke loose, etc., etc., etc.).

I think by this point, most people looking into this series know what it is basically about, so I won't go into that again.

Although I love the story, I hesitate to call it a I will call it an installment, as each is very short (I've been reading about one a day - and considering I work full time and have a one year old, i don't get a lot of reading time).

The further in the series I get, the more I like it. It's a mix of what is happening in the current (book time) as well as a history

I was born two years before we landed on the moon, somewhere in the middle of Long Island. I was too young to remember much, except for the park ritual of spinning three times on a stump, the bee that flew down my throat, and getting my fingernails smashed off in a car door. Ok, that's not fair. I also remember when the mean kid across the street was run over by the mailman.
