BLOG TOUR - The Blast by Sarah Perlmutter **GIVEAWAY**


Welcome to my blog tour stop for The Blast by Sarah Perlmutter, 
a young adult dystopia which follows Beatrice and her family during the aftermath of a nuclear bomb, a gripping read, find out more below!


The Blast
Release Date: 12/15/14
200 pages

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?

I do love a good dystopian but the one thing that I find missing a lot of the time is the immediate aftermath, when the bombs drop.

The Blast satisfies this missing ingredient, starting off as a perfectly normal day with two young kids innocently playing, little do they know their lives are about to change dramatically and very much for the worst.

Our POV for the book is young Beatrice who is ten when the book starts, thinking she sees fireworks in the distance her family which consists of her parents and brother along with their neighbour and his two kids hurry to the prepped basement of their house, her father tells her a big bomb has exploded but they will be safe in the basement, it has been filled with supplies for a long time.

Above ground they hear the blast pass over head, eventually they look out from their basement to see what has happened. There is fire everywhere , fire and destruction.  The group lay low until they start hearing people moving above.  The grown ups decide they need to defend their house and this is when the book steps up a notch.

The question is would you let complete strangers share your carefully saved food stock or would you shoot first and ask questions later?  Beatrice is shocked by what happens and she changes over night from a happy go lucky young girl to a hardened survivor.  

The Blast is a great read, as the story continues it follows Beatrice and her family as they struggle to survive in the horrific aftermath.  If you enjoy your YA/Dystopia then you'll enjoy this.
