The Bombs That Brought Us Together (mini-review)

Finished The Bombs That Brought Us Together by Brian Conaghan. I received a copy for review. 

Charlie lives in Little Town, which is currently a bad place to be (thanks to bombings and new, oppressive rules thanks to a coup). As things change for him and the other residents, all of a sudden clear-cut choices start to get really, really gray. 

I love the questions that this book stirs up: what would you really do to protect people you love? Would you literally kill for someone? How many rules/social mores would you break?

This was such a fascinating story and I want to read his debut novel (When Mr. Dog Bites) now. ETA: that is his second novel; his debut is The Boy Who Made It Rain.)
