The Doomsday Kids series continues with Nester's Mistake
It's a "shoot first, ask questions later" world after the apocalypse. After a perilous Doomsday escape from the nuclear wreckage of their Washington, DC suburb in book one, Liam's Promise, the surviving kids reach their destination, a mountain safe house, only to find their troubles have just begun. There are no adults and the kids are still all alone.   An African American, 15 year old Nester Bartlett's biggest worries had been growing up black in America... but the nuclear apocalypse has changed all of the rules. Now, instead of getting good grades and struggling against the negative stereotypes against African American men, he's fighting just to stay alive. With no skills for his new life of tending animals, maintaining fires and defending their mountain cabin against intruders, he's unprepared for the threats that bombard him and his friends from the weather, from escaped prisoners from a nearby correctional facility and from their own grief over their losses. Then, as nuclear winter sweeps over their mountain home killing crops and animals, a medical emergency threatens one of their number. Nester must make a desperate choice that shatters their little community and irrevocably alters their chances for survival.  

Nester's Mistake is book two of six in The Doomsday Kids teen/new adult post-apocalyptic series.

From the Back Cover:

After their perilous escape from the wreckage of Washington, DC the surviving kids reach the Mountain Place, only to find their troubles have just begun. Fifteen-year-old Nester Bartlett's biggest worries had been growing up black in America... until a nuclear apocalypse changed all of the rules he lived by. Now, instead of getting good grades and struggling against the negative stereotypes against African American men, he's fighting just to stay alive.
 
A 21st century nerd who excelled at robotics and science, Nester finds himself thrown into a lifestyle his great-great grandfather might have understood-- tending animals, maintaining fires and guarding their safe house from intruders.  Angry, confused and grieving, Nester must find a way to put aside his feelings to care for the other Doomsday Kids, most of whom are too sick or traumatized to care for themselves. Then, as nuclear winter sweeps over them killing crops and animals, a medical emergency forces Nester to make a heartbreaking choice that shatters their little community and alters their hopes for survival forever.
 
This is the second book in The Doomsday Kids series.
