So-so teen book about a young woman whose mother builds a fallout shelter that only winds up being used by her twin brother (to do drugs, including a near-fatal overdose) and by her (to lose her virginity to her brother's friend). Mom is distant and mostly unhelpful, dad's out of the picture. The story deals with fairly typical teen struggles and angst, but the setting is kind of dated and may not resonate with young people today. I finished reading it, so that's something.
