Part coming-of-age summer romance, part thriller, Bomb Island is a funny and fast-paced Southern novel exploring subculture communities, survival, and found family set on an island near an unexploded atomic bomb.

Fifteen-year-old Fish lives in a commune on the three-mile stretch of sand with his chosen family: their "mother-sage" Whistle and her white tiger, Sugar, a young man named Reef, and an old man named Nutzo, who is still missing. Fish and Whistle spend the days leading tours in their glass bottom boat out to the barrier island's namesake, an unexploded atomic bomb.

Savannah author Stephen Hundley has inflated a wild and visceral world into existence on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia in his debut novel “Bomb Island.” Among the native flora and fauna dwell a dwindling commune of eclectic humans and a herd of feral horses hunted by a full-grown tiger — while a rogue atomic missile sits just off shore.

Bomb Island can be described in many different ways. It’s a coming of age story, a travel tale, an animal story, a tale of dysfunctional families, a mystery , a suspense novel and more! The characters are very well described and easy to picture in the story. I was surprised by the many twists and turns that happened. I enjoyed this book! I read it because it was featured at Square Books . So glad I did! 1 Robin Thompson46 3

Hundley’s debut novel did not disappoint! Colorful characters and gritty coastal setting. Not all coastal island living is glamorous and this made me love the rough barrier island setting even more. Hundley knows his setting having lived near the area in his youth. Definite coming-of-age story, but action and twists I wasn’t expecting made me emotional. And I was not expecting that. Bomb Island will stay with me long after I’ve closed the pages. Ezekiel CarsellaAuthor 2 books5
