Ashfall by Mike Mullin
One minute, Alex is enjoying the freedom of being left home alone for the weekend while his parents and sister visit family out of town, and the next his world is ripped apart. The world shakes, something crashes into his house and sets it on fire, a continuous series of deafening explosions fill the air—and then the ash starts to fall. Determined to find his family, Alex sets out across Iowa toward his uncle’s farm, finding obstacles, enemies, allies, and love along the way.
Fans of disaster fiction will love all the issues Alex faces and overcomes. The story is often graphic in its description of violence and the necessities of finding food, and is not recommended for anyone sensitive to those sorts of things. Recommended for High School and up.
