Designed to enforce a stable society to exist within its own rules, the vault is salvation for the wealthy. When a surprise nuclear attack threatens the United States, the vault's residents are driven underground to begin life anew, but one secret addition to the roster could make the entire system unravel. This is the world seventeen year old Olivia Parker finds herself locked inside, and she's not supposed to be there! Quickly she must learn and conform to the rules of this new society or face severe punishment. Surrounded by strangers, she's torn between trusting the man who forced her inside the vault or the genius who created it. If she's going to survive, she won't be able to do it alone.

4/5
So the story started out a little confusing. So it starts off after Olivia's mother and brother die. She is on her way home from a college interview. She meets this mystery guy while buying snacks. Then suddenly he is whisking her away and wont tell her why. That is when everything she knows is turned upside down. Gavin gets the call and is told he needs to come back. He realizes that he can not just leave Olivia there. So he drags her along without telling her anything so he can save her life.
So the story starts when Gavin and Olivia meet. When he gets a call telling him what is about to happen he takes her with him. I thought it was a very interesting story. Different from most I have read. It really makes you think about what would happen in these situations. How do you not save everyone. Olivia is now having to get over her grief and learn how to save her life. I thought Olivia was a great character. So strong for a 17 year old. It is a book that is a must read.

  excerpt 
 Yesterday, he’d said to her, “There will be a time, a place for grief, but now you must be strong and survive.” She’d been caught up in that image, that flash, man’s nuclear stamp, and had not really understood what happened after. The helicopter had landed, and she’d been ushered out in one fast motion, with Gavin pulling her along until her feet wouldn’t move any further, for what she saw was unimaginable. A crowd of people was before her, regular people mixed in with the military uniforms, outnumbering the military, it seemed, scurrying about carrying suitcases, garbage bags, and kids. It was as if a concert of campers had let out and they had no idea where to go. She’d had no idea where to go. Her legs wouldn’t move. Gavin had not hesitated for one second, he’d picked her up in one fast motion, carrying her in his arms and whispering those words of survival. She’d responded, “We’re going to die!” “No, we’ll live. I promise you that.” He’d said it in a way that she couldn’t doubt, the same way he’d snapped his soldiers back into their rank on the helicopter. His words had been soft yet firm, and she wanted to believe in him as his men had, with confidence. When she’d asked, “How?” and he’d said, “I’ll take care of everything. I’ll take care of you,” she’d believed him and trusted him to take her through what was before them.
