Haven't read it yet, but based on the summary alone...this sounds like an apocalyptic version of The Breakfast Club. Just sayin'.

It was extremely well written. There were so many crazy plot twists it was utterly impossible to feel bored. I'm looking forward to book 2.

I loved this book and could not put it down. Forget about it being a teenage read. This is great for all ages. It was well written and pieced together. The author holds you from the first page. I am hoping for a sequel.

Really enjoyed this book, the mix of ages and personalities of the kids locked int he store and how they learn to cope with the 'end of the world'. Fast paced and couldn't put it down, can't wait to read book 2.

Young adult survivalist fiction. A number of students are stranded in a box store during increasingly dangerous weather. This is a good introduction to apocalyptic/ survivalist fiction. It is a lot less violent and gory than usual, which is a nice break.

Mom yells at me to hurry, or I’ll be late for the bus. My younger brother Alex is right at my heels. Same old, same old. Right? Wrong! As the boys ride their buses to school, a freak hailstorm hits (denting the roof, cracking the windshield, breaking the windows). As Dean watches, his brother’s bus goes slamming through the glass doors of the local superstore, as his bus tips over and lands on its roof. Chaos reigns for the next 12 days as 14 kids (ranging from 5 – 17 years old) try to survive inside a chain superstore as the world outside falls apart. A cross between Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies. The sequel Monument 14: Sky on Fire is due to be released Spring/Summer 2013. Reviewed by GE

I really liked this book, due to the fact that it wasnt just teenagers that were the main focus, but also children. then the blood symptons were just original. great book.

Very fast-paced. Reminiscent of Lord of the Flies.
