The End Of The World (As We Know It)
A bomb has gone off, leaving Samantha Higgins and her friends trapped in an old shelter. The chaos filled government has assumed no survivors, no one is coming to rescue them. It’s up to them to get out. They have only each other and Mike, the grumpy old veteran who pushed them into the shelter.

Mike, a veteran of Nam, finds himself helping others when a flash in the sky occurs. Mike had been fearing something like this would happen but no one believed him. Luckily, for a small group of youngsters, Mike comes to their aid. He threw the youngest into a bunker and the others followed her.As you can imagine, quite the scenario unfolds when they get inside the facility. One is a whiner named Mia, Winnie is a youngster approaching her 10th birthday, a "geek" named Gabe, Samantha has a black belt and then there is Ian. Lots of bickering going on until Mike (I call him the Man) steps in and takes control.I thought it was an interesting story and could well envision the reactions of these youngsters in the bunker!Mike does have a plan for all of them, however. Will his plan be enough to get them out of the bunker and to safety?Highly recommended.
Could have had more detail, but overall a good read. But it was a good read on my Kindle HD
When I purchased this book there were no reviews posted so I took a chance at it. I needed to go back and read Amy’s bio because I thought I was reading a children’s book written by a seventh grader. If it was a seventh grader who had written this I would have said it was good but to learn it was an actual adult I wondered where her head was at! "Now I understand". I would recommend this to children from ten to 15 only.
