** spoiler alert ** Fallout is the 3rd book of the story of a troubled mom- Kristina. She now has five kids, two of her boys live with her and their dad, her current abusive boyfriend. Her oldest boy, Hunter, is now growing out of the house. He had a good child hood after been taken in by Kristina's mother and step father. Hunter deals with trying to get his girlfriend back after he cheated on her and earning his trust again. Kristina's two sons that lived with her are now under custody of her mother after her boyfriend beat her up again. Autumn does not meet her mother or father until he shows up at her aunts wedding and takes her to meet her mother and her siblings on Christmas. Autumn lived with her dad's dad and her aunt until her aunt got married. She has a compulsive disorder and deals with her first love. Summer has been moving from foster homes since she was young. After moving to her most recent one she is away from her boyfriend. He convinces her to run away together. They live in his truck for a week. They run out of money and as they drive to town they get in a car accident from icy roads. They are okay but her boyfriend needs help so they go to the hospital. They are caught and she makes up a story of heading to Kristina's moms house for a Christmas party. Kristina's step father picks her up. At the end all 5 children, Kristina, Kristina's siblings, and her mother and step father are all together at the house. The end is a ruiniun and gives closer although you still do not know where the children will live. I liked this book but I did not like how it skipped around a lot and rotated through the children's stories, because once I got into one story, I did not want to hear about the other kid until I knew what was going to happen.
