did not like it
bookshelves: teen, apocalyptic, set-in-seattle, high-low, guy-book

The premise is great: a Seattle tech buzillionaire builds a compound in anticipation of a terrorist attack, and then ushers most of his family into it one day (one kid and a grandma are left behind), where they remain for years. Gradually, the kids become suspicicious about what's really going on.

The writing is just intolerable, though. My ARC says the author is a creative writing teacher, so I guess in this case it's true what they say about what "those who can't" do.
