Description-
  • Eli and his family have lived in the Compound for six years.
    The world they knew is gone.
    Eli's father built the Compound to keep them safe. Now, they can't get out.
    He won't let them.



    Dad asked me if I wanted to see more of the Compound.

    I didn't. We would have to wait fifteen years before it would be safe to go outside. Which left more than enough time to see the rest of the Compound.

    Our new world.

    A world I would soon hate.

About the Author-
  • S. A. BODEEN'S first novel, The Compound, earned her a "Flying Start" from Publishers Weekly and was chosen by YALSA as a Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. She lives in Oregon with her family.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Debut author Bodeen creates a thrilling young adult tale that is sure to engage adults as well. Set somewhere near the time of the apocalypse, the story tells of Eli and his family, who are forced to live in the compound his father has built for them. Eli doesn't know why his father refuses to let them leave. Narrator Christopher Lane captures every character with honesty and believability. Lane brings his audience into the story, placing them right inside the compound with the family. Appropriately, the story emits a palpable feeling of claustrophobia, but the exciting plot twists and explosive action keep listeners engaged. L.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
