Hi there,

trying to find out the title of a dark Sci-Fi Book I remember reading as an young teenager. It's set in Britain I think after a Nuclear War and I think is divided into 3 act...

The first one involves a mother trying to keep her family together after The bomb has dropped and the fallout. gradually they start to detoriate and her son is after a Mars Bars or something so runs out!? bizarre but it's what I remember....

The Second part I think involves following some Survivors in a Bunker/Shelter

And the third part may be set like a generation later and involves mutants?

hmmm I not too sure.... any help greatly appreciated!!

like I said my best guess is its a British Book....

cheers

Kie
