Today's podcast 04/27/2014

  • Mullen, Mike. ASHFALL New York : Tanglewood, 2011 IL YA ISBN 1933718552 The first of a series, Ashfall is a post apocalyptic tale set in present times. A super volcano under Yellowstone Park erupts, and the catastrophic explosions are felt for hundreds of miles. Alex, left on his own for the weekend in Cedar Falls, Iowa, is almost killed in the decimation of his house, and he quickly realizes that life as he knew it is gone forever. In the midst of the panic and chaos surrounding him, he decides to head to Illinois to reunite with his family. As he struggles cross-country through heavy, drifting ash, he faces starvation, abandoned homesteads, violent strangers, and unexpected love. What will he find at the end of his journey? How can he keep going amid the death and destruction surrounding him? You will not be able to put down this gripping, sometimes grim, page-turner of a novel. Winnie Host, Penncrest High School (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
