Goodread's Bio: Under the bubbling hot springs and geysers of Yellowstone National Park is a supervolcano. Most people don't know it's there. The caldera is so large that it can only be seen from a plane or satellite. It just could be overdue for an eruption, which would change the landscape and climate of our planet.
For Alex, being left alone for the weekend means having the freedom to play computer games and hang out with his friends without hassle from his mother. Then the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, plunging his hometown into a nightmare of darkness, ash, and violence. Alex begins a harrowing trek to search for his family and finds help in Darla, a travel partner he meets along the way. Together they must find the strength and skills to survive and outlast an epic disaster.
My Review: Ok, i must admit, since i read Life As We Knew It i already knew some of the things that were gonna happen. But that didn't affect how i felt towards this book!
i didn't want this to end ever! so much stuff went down and i was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Alex was an awesome main character, i admit, i couldn't have done half the stuff he did. he is a badbutt teenager! Darla made an every more awesome supporting character. she's a role model for sure.
i couldn't image this super volcano happening, i know all this stuff could happen in some freak way so i just hope i'm safe in my Indiana home :]
Recommend it?: hells yes!
8 books to go til i reach 100 books this year :]
