Coming of age after the end of the world.


The Bunker was humanity's last hope. An underground town, sealed away from the radiation that killed everything on the surface. A lifeboat, with its own water and power and hydroponic farms to see us through the long nuclear winter.

But radiation isn't the only thing that can kill you, and life in the Bunker has its own dangers. There are a half dozen factions that rule this town, and it's a bad idea to get on the wrong side of any of them.

I'm one of the Brats, the kids who were born in this place and have never seen the open sky. But I've never fit in with the rest of them. I'm not one of the Cools, or the Geeks, or the Chosen. I'm just the weird boy who sits in the library, reading stories about the world that's gone. But still, this is my home, too.

And now it's dying.

The Bunker is failing. One by one, the lights are going out, and the farms are going dark. Soon there won't be enough food to go around. And the factions are already starting to turn on each other.

Sometimes it takes an outsider to see what's really going on. Somebody with nothing to lose.

So if anyone is gonna save this place, I guess it will have to be me.
