Ashfall by Mike Mullin
This YA dystopian story is told by 15/16 year old Alex, who has stayed home for the weekend while his parents and sister went to visit relatives. When the Yellowstone volcano erupts, throwing the area into an ashen disaster area, he is alone and skis off on the ash to find and join them. He runs into bad guys and trouble along the way and is rescued by a mother and daughter whose farm he stumbles into. They save his life and in turn, he also saves 18 year old Darla's life. This is a good first book in the series and I look forward to reading the others.
