Book Spotlight: Ashfall

Ashfall by Mike Mullins

Review by Rebecca, Windsor Branch

Following the destructive explosion of a super volcano, 15 year old Alex decides to brave a desolate, lawless journey to find his family, on vacation in another state.

Why I picked it up:  This book was recommended to me by a friend.

Why I finished it:  I could hardly put this book down!  The writing was great, and very engaging, with well-drawn characters.  It was action-packed, and never slowed down; I kept turning the page to find out what would happen next.

I'd recommend it to:  Just about anyone; the theme is survival, and there are a lot of interesting elements to consider were such a catastrophe to occur.  I enjoyed the pace of the book, and the romance that develops is quite sweet and true to life.
