The Blast by Sarah Perlmutter was an exhilarating read! The author wastes no time in introducing us to the main character, a ten-year-old Beatrice. Shortly thereafter, the author takes the reader on an unforgettable post-apocalyptical ride.
I loved the way the author allowed the reader to follow Beatrice from girl to teenager, giving the reader a glimpse into how the perspective can change as we age.
The Blast didn't shy away from the perils created in a post-apocalyptical world. The author tackled some serious situations including how does one survive? Food? Water? Love? Loss? Religion is even a discussion. All these elements can get lost when tackling a post-apocalyptical world, but Ms. Perlmutter hit this head on making the world so much more believable and made it hard to put the book down.
I would highly recommend The Blast to lovers of Dystopian themed societies and great YA reads delving into post-apocalyptical worlds.
