Title: Bunker Boy
Author: Jordan Elizabeth
Narrator: Tracy Hundley
All Zara wanted to do was pass her Spanish final and graduate high school, but suddenly she’s waking up in an unknown hospital. The east coast is destroyed and she’s one of the few survivors. The government has assigned her to Outpost Eight, an abandoned Catskills resort converted into a fortress. Not only does Zara have to come to terms with the loss of everything she’s ever known, but the leader of Outpost Eight marries her to his son.
Cliff Andrews is too quiet and afraid of everything, especially his father. There’s much more to the situation than he’s telling Zara. Nothing feels right about Outpost Eight and Zara questions what really happened to Cliff’s first wife.
Everyone else might be willing to blindly follow the leader’s laws, but not Zara. She won’t stop until she knows the truth about Outpost Eight.
The world’s been destroyed. Zara has been in a medically induced coma for five years. Or so she’s been told. When Zara is groomed to acclimation in a place known as Outpost Eight, filled with the belief that a terrorist attack destroyed her country and she and a handful of others were the only survivors. It’s not long before things start to not add up. Questions are forming. The most haunting of all: is it all a lie?
Full of twists and turns. At first, the book seemed so straight forward, but as the book came to a close, it was jolting to see just how much suspense the author could pack into the book. Zara was an easy MC to root for. She was sweet but determined. A strong character. I also liked Cliff, Zara’s “Bunker Boy.” Even though I shouldn’t, I found myself feeling sorry for him.
Although a short listen, it’s definitely a rollercoaster.
Narration was soft and lilting which fit the sweet personality of the MC.
