Dusty Cover Monday!
It's "Dusty Cover Monday" yet again! Dusty Cover Monday is a meme/challenge started here at Novel Goddess by my partner in crime, Kristy Z. The challenge is to get you to pick up a book that has been sitting and collecting dust, that you've been meaning to read...or maybe pick up a book published a year or so ago and read it. With all our excitement over new releases, it's easy to set a previous "new release" aside to pick up something that came out more recently. So grab a book and let's go.
My Dusty Cover is "Compound" by S. A. Bodeen
Eli and his family have lived in the underground Compound for six years. The world they knew is gone, and they've become accustomed to their new life. Accustomed, but not happy.
For Eli, no amount of luxury can stifle the dull routine of living in the same place, with only his two sisters, 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 can't help but wonder if he's rather take his chances outside.
Eli's father built the Compound to keep them safe. But are they safe - or sorry?
