Atomic Family by Ciera Horton McElroy


One of the disadvantages of reading as much as I do is that many books feel formulaic. Well, not this one. It's a fascinating reflection on life in the nuclear age and life in nuclear families. It would provide excellent discussion material for book groups, and the ending was amazing.

I don't normally do kids' books for myself, but this was quite fun.
