Description

I guess I always felt even if the world came to an end, McDonald s still would be open." High school sophomore Miranda s disbelief turns to fear in a split second when an asteroid knocks the moon closer to Earth, like "one marble hits another." The result is catastrophic. How can her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis are wiping out the coasts, earthquakes are rocking the continents, and volcanic ash is blocking out the sun? As August turns dark and wintery in northeastern Pennsylvania, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove. Told in a year s worth of journal entries, this heart-pounding story chronicles Miranda s struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all hope in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world. An extraordinary series debut Susan Beth Pfeffer has written three companion novels to "Life As We Knew It, "including "The Dead and the Gone, This World We Live In, "and "The Shade of the Moon."

Life as We Knew It is written as the journal of high school junior Miranda. Life in her small Pennsylvania town isn’t perfect- her best friends are bugging her and she’s not sure she even likes them much anymore. One has become a born again Christian and the other one is really into boys. Her dad’s new wife is pregnant and giddy and that’s bugging her too. She wants to start ice skating lessons again but her mom wants her to continue on the swim team. To top it all off, there’s this “moon thing”. At first it barely gets a mention in her journal, but then her teachers start piling on more homework about the moon.
