Nuclear power provides almost 15 percent of the world's electricity, but this energy doesn't come without a cost. Past nuclear accidents have had disastrous effects on the environment and future accidents could cause an even larger catastrophe. Looming large-scale are the devastating effects of nuclear warfare. With this arresting book, which is a clever mix of fact and fiction, readers join young Shona as she leaves a bunker she was born in for the first time. Through Shona's journal and photographs, they discover a possible dreadful future and how such a disaster could be avoided in real life.
