A YA post-apocalyptic about a civilization living underground for couple thousand years. Two young people discover a passage created by an earthquake that leads them to the surface. Here they find a civilization that has also survived.
Limited character development and unrealistic interactions between groups separated by 2000 years.
However, this book was enjoyable and reading did not leave a feeling of time wasted. ( )
