Amy Brashear's playlist of '80s teen nostaligia - Author Amy Brashear (No Saints in Kansas) has penned a hilarious, cinematic and off-the-wall story of a small town’s (fake) nuclear demise with her latest YA historical novel, The Incredible True Story of the Making of the Eve of Destruction. There isn’t much to do in Griffin Flats, Arkansas in 1984, and misfit teen Laura is painfully aware of that fact. The only thing that cuts through the boredom is the omnipresent threat of a Soviet bombing of the town's nuclear missile silos and the Mutually Assured Destruction that would follow. But when a Hollywood big shot chooses Griffin Flats as the shooting location for his upcoming nuclear holocaust movie, The Eve of Destruction, the whole town is turned upside down. Killing the SS. Leigh Bardugo. Face your demons...or feed them.
