The Sky So Heavy, by Claire Zorn
Fin is from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, is completing year 12, trying to win Lucy’s affection and has no idea his world is about to change. A nuclear disaster on the other side of the world changes everything and a dust cloud swallows up the sky, bringing with it a nuclear winter.
Fin’s parents are missing, food supplies are running low and with his younger brother, Max, they must confront the unimaginable hardships of their world facing crisis and complete chaos. This book exposes the horrors of nuclear warfare and the enduring power of love, family and friendship.
It is a fast paced story of survival, courage, fear and trust. I couldn’t put this book down and hope for a sequel soon!
