''Bunker 10'' is a {{SciFi}}/Thriller/Horror novel written in 2007 by Sottish author J.A. Henderson. It has a convoluted TwistEnding, but to find out about that, we suggest readig the book.

Jimmy Hicks is just like any normal kid; he wants to spend the holidays away from school and go on a date with his crush, Leslie.

The only trouble is that Jimmy, along with six other teen geniuses (Leslie, Simon, Barn, Dave, May-Rose and Cruikshank), goes to school at Pinewoods Military Installation, a government military base. Forced to spend Christmas vacation at the base, Jimmy and Leslie make a plan to sneak out by disabling the security codes on the gate.

Then, something happens in the lower levels, in the top-secret lab known as Bunker 10. An experiment goes horribly wrong and a plague that threatens the entire human race is released.

It's a race against time, as the base is set to self-destruct and all communication with the outside world is cut off, making the prospect of escape very bleak indeed.

Can Jimmy and his friends survive?

* GrandfatherParadox: Quoted word for word in the beginning of the novel.
* TheHero: Jimmy.
* HeroicBSOD: Barn, after he realizes that his actions (giving Sherman's team the idea to flood the fourth level, which is filled with Dunwoody's trapped men, with gasoline and light it on fire) caused many deaths.
* JiveTurkey: "Diddy" Dave. So very much. Although [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that he grew up in the projects.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Damn it, Jimmy, why did you have to [[spoiler:disable all the locks in the base, allowing May-Rose to escape?]]
* PerkyGoth: Leslie. As Jimmy tells her, "You've got a very sunny disposition for a goth," although she denies being one.
* PlayfulHacker: Dave.
