Life As We Knew It
by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Miranda is almost done with her sophomore year of high school. Life seems pretty normal, even when hearing about an asteroid that is going to hit the moon's surface. And then it hits, knocking the moon off its axis and all hell breaks loose on the planet: earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcano eruptions.
Life used to be easy for Miranda and her family. Now they are hardly eating due to food shortages, and they cannot drive because of gas shortage. They are in survival mode, and it is tough on all of them.
This novel was slow at the start, but once it got started, I could hardly put it down. It was fast-paced and interesting, and I was totally fascinated by the idea of the moon being hit, causing worldwide catastrophe! It really makes me wonder if the government would be like this today if it happened!
If you're into the "end of the world" type books, this is for you. It was amazing!
