The book is the diary of a woman who grew up in a bunker generations after the world has been virtually annihilated by nuclear war following the Bay of Pigs incident in 1962.

I love time travel and alternate history, so this book piqued my curiosity when it arrived in a bookbox. And the cover quotes by Robert J. Sawyer and Allen Steele impressed me.

More of a 3 1/2 star book, but not 4. The first half of the book would appeal to anyone who enjoys playing Fallout - three kids from a future postnuclear bunker (!) travel back in time to 1962 to prevent a botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. The story bogs down midway as the kids acclimate to the real world and history branches out repeatedly. Quick and entertaining, and a better book than the average GR rating shows.
Good time travel story.
