Life As We Knew It – Susan Beth Pfeffer

What happens when an asteroid crashes into the moon and shifts it closer to the Earth? Tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, and volcanic dust are only some of the results of this disaster. The 15- year-old narrator is Miranda, who lives in a rural area of the US. As she details all the struggles she and her family have to survive, I found myself (when involuntarily pulled out of the book) checking outside to see if the air was clear of volcanic ash and the sun was still shining. Utterly captivating, mesmerizing and inspiring, I stayed up till 3am reading this book (the first time I read it). (submitted by SB)
