About the Book:

The morning after Hurricane Leo rips through their town, four friends find a total mess outside, with downed branches and uprooted trees everywhere. They know they should stay indoors, but they want to go exploring, even if it means having a new kid, Ricky, tagging along.

Ricky’s the first to discover a strange trapdoor in the middle of the woods – the door to an old bomb shelter, unearthed by the hurricane. Inside, the boys find a completely intact underground lair, with electricity, food, and even a TV. The boys vow to keep the place a secret. It’s theirs now.

But some secrets are hard to keep … especially when adults and older kids are closing in. And what started as a fun hangout spot soon becomes a serious refuge for one of the boys. The Fort has become the safest place they have. But will they be able to protect it?
