Book Overview

From Andy Marino, author of The Plot to Kill Hitler series, comes another fast-paced historical thriller chronicling one family's desperate bid to escape the deadly Chernobyl disaster.

26 April 1986

Alina & Lev are two siblings living in Pripyat, one of the Soviet Union's proud nuclear cities. Both are asleep in their beds.

Their cousin, Yuri, is a custodian at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, where he's fiercely attacking a spill in the hallway with a mop.

Alina's best friend, Sofiya, sleeps just a few doors down. Her father is an engineer at the plant, a fact that has always filled her with pride.

In five minutes, Reactor No. 4 will explode in a ball of fire. It will expel radiation across their town for nine days before it's finally contained. For the people of Pripyat, it will be far too late.

Two young siblings flee the Chernobyl disaster with their parents, but the Communist party is on their heels. Meanwhile, the friends and family they were forced to leave behind must contend with a disinformation campaign that's determined to pretend nothing is wrong-even as deadly radiation spills into the air.

   Simultaneously Fascinating and Disturbing Historical Fiction
I actually ordered this book for myself when I ordered books from my kids' scholastic book order. This is a book that was best suited to middle school or above and held my interest as an adult. This is definitely a fascinating but distrubing part of history and the author does a great job of conveying the urgency and danger of the time, Raymond said. The second book is a great read, too.

   We’re enjoying this book!
My fifth-grade son purchased the book from the book fair. He and I haven't finished this book yet, but he wants to read it every night so that's a good sign. It's a really well-written book, but as a teacher and a mom of two, it's definitely not leveled correctly. There is not any content that is inappropriate, it is just at a much higher reading level than I had anticipated. 0 3171616 There is not any content that is inappropriate, it is just at a much higher reading level than I had anticipated. The vocabulary is very rich and we often have to stop and discuss what's going on in every single word. I would level it around 8th grade. My son is on level with his reading and had some difficulty reading this alone, so I'm reading it to him instead of to him. We are about half way through but I will come back and give you updates once we are finished, he said.
