The day the bombs started to fall, Kelly was at school. Her dad had predicted World War III would happen during his lifetime, but he and his son had died two years ago from the plagues.

Racing home to meet her mom Megan, and collect her go-bag so they could find their place of refuge, Kelly finds her calmly drinking a cup of tea. Before they leave, she reminds her for the umpteenth time to remember the rules: 1. Pray 2. Trust no one 3. Stay Alive. But Kelly doesn’t have the faith her mother does.

Once they reach the camp that Megan had invested time and money into in the event of this war, they find things have changed and this is where all the twists and turns in the story begin. Nothing goes as Megan and Kelly expected. Before long it’s just her with her mother’s rules on the run being hunted by the men from the camp.

This was an amazing novel. I loved it! Bonnie Paulson’s writing simply improves with every book she writes.

Paulson knows how to keep the suspense going in her books with just enough clean romance to balance it so we don’t have to bite all our fingernails off. I liked how she brought Kelly and Bodey together and admitted that they had feelings for each other. I also appreciated how John tried to keep the sleeping arrangements as separate as possible given their crazy situation.

I thought that much of the chaos and mayhem that went on in the book was probably fairly realistic. Already in real life we see evidence of it in a smaller scale in the riots and looting when there is a breakdown in government, so in a world-wide event, I’m sure the chaos would be even more widespread.

I thought the characters in Cost of Survival were realistic.

Dystopian books are not necessarily my favorites. I often feel like I am reading the same story again and again. Yet, if Bonnie R. Paulson writes it, I am compelled to read it. There is something about her voice and her style that sucks you in and makes each one of her stories unique. I was relaxing in a hot tub on vacation and read the whole book at once. And now I desperately need to get my hands on Book 2.

Kelly is already having enough difficulty, being 17 years old and having lost her father and her brother. Now with WWIII starting up, she and her mother now have to race for their lives. She is torn between what she thought was real and what her beliefs were and what her mother is telling her she needs to do. She has a very real struggle with faith, whereas her mother is unwavering in hers. I truly love how Kelly comes home from school once the bombings start, already in fight or flight mode, and her mother is just calmly drinking a cup of tea. That one scene toward the beginning says so much about their characters.

Kelly's mom is strong. She has been trying to teach Kelly to be strong. Kelly doesn't think she is really strong, but I think quickly finds out that she has strength she had never imagined. She grows in that respect, plus in her ideas about faith. Some of the questions that she asks herself as she ponders her existence and the state of the world actually made my brain start to spin. Would I have any faith if I were in the same situation? How would I feel if confronted with people wanting to kill me or hurt me, with betrayal, with the evil of this Third World War? I always say it is a good sign if a book keeps you glued to the pages AND makes you think while you are reading it.

I really enjoyed this book, It makes you stop and think about a lot of things, I cannot wait for the other two books in this series, I really like Mrs, Paulson's books and am excited to read anything new, I love the fact that it makes me think and it sucks you in like it is you and you feel all the emotions the characters go through because the writing is that good. Highly recommend.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first of Bonnie Paulson work that I've read. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I wasn't disappointed. This journey is revolving around Kelly and the cost of her Survival . It is a pretty good journey, well I hesitate to say "good" because it was such an emotional journey. There was so much emotion in this book that you can't help but feel it. I laughed, cried, got angry, and even felt a bit nauseous at times with Kelly. I really like this book and can't wait for book 2!! 4 STARS!

WOW!!!! What a great beginning to what I can already tell is going to be an amazing series. It is amazing how you can read a fiction book and think how did the author get inside my head. The questions asked in this book are so many I often ask myself. Do you really want to survive the end of the world when all you know and loved is lost? When there is no law and the strong prey on the weak. Is life worth living when the only thing you are doing is surviving and fighting to stay alive and whole? This book is a look into all of those question. I love Kelly and how you truly see her growth throughout the book from a do I want to fight to a true fighter. The action a also non stop and just when you get you heart rate settled back down and can relax into the story again BOOM! something else happens. I could not put it down finishing it in one setting. It is an amazing story that shows true strength and determination. It will truly have you mind going and thinking what would I do in that situation. I truly can't wait to read the next book and see where the journey will take them and how or who will survive.
