Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eli and his family have lived in the underground Compound for six years. The world they knew is gone, and theyve become accustomed to their new life. Accustomed, but not happy. No amount of luxury can stifle the dull routine of living in the same place, with only his two sisters, only his father and mother, doing the same thing day after day after day. As problems with their carefully planned existence threaten to destroy their sanctuary—and their sanity—Eli cant help but wonder if hed rather take his chances outside. Elis father built the Compound to keep them safe. But are they safe—really?
 
The Compound is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Elis father built the Compound to keep their family safe. Now, they cant get out. He wont let them.

Synopsis:

Elis father built the Compound to keep their family safe. Now, they cant get out. He wont let them.

Synopsis:

Something bad is happening to the world. Trees are dying. Cancer is on the rise and becoming more aggressive. Kesla saw that first hand as she watched her father die from the disease. Science offers no answers.

Then fifteen-year-old Kelsa meets a boy. He's the most beautiful boy she's ever seen, but he's also very strange. He claims to be Raven, the mythological creature. He keeps going on about magic and an impending ecological disaster and insisting the Kelsa must help him save the world.

Maybe he's crazy.

Or maybe he's telling her truths people have forgotten. And maybe she should help him, even if doing so means risking her own life.

JA from River’s Edge HS: I would recommend Compound because it is an interesting twist on a post-apocalyptic or a fall-out esque situation. The characters are memorable and stand out from one another personality wise. If you are into a post-apocalyptic or fall out theme it is a definite read for you.
