Gripping story about a teenaged girl and her family surviving apocalyptic weather events--from volcanic ash to blistering heat--and how they came together as a family to keep each other alive. I tore through this book, fearing what would happen to Miranda, Matt, Jonathan, and their mom (even their cat!).

It's amazing how humans can survive the unsurvivable. While I hope an asteroid never moves the moon in real life, it does make you wonder, "how would I have survived?" ( )

I feel like I've been using the word fantastic a lot in my reviews this month. And I'm not complaining - what an awesome way to start out 2019.

I didn't expect this book to be as great as it was but it held me hostage for most of today. I couldn't even stop thinking about it through dinner with my wife. Finally, I was able to finish off the story in bed tonight and wow. Its unsettling, moving and terrifying at the same time. Not to mention inspiring. It reminds you of just how much we take for granted every day, and though I'll admit it wasn't my favorite writing style ( it's written through the perspective of a 16 year old girl's diary entries) it was just plain captivating. Frighteningly realistic storytelling. ( )

A haunting look at what happens to a small town girl and her family when a world-wide natural disaster happens. The book is very realistic, but not graphic. Violence is hinted at, but not present. Well done, but it still gave bad dreams! ( )

Miranda is an ordinary sixteen year old girl living in a small town in Pennsylvania with her mother and younger brother when it all begins. Her entire town turns out to see what is supposed to be a simple night time display – a small asteroid crashing into the moon. Instead, the collision sends the moon off its normal orbital course, which wreaks havoc on the earth’s climate, and consequently, “life as we knew it.” Miranda’s mother immediately understands the implications of what is happening, and to Miranda’s shock and confusion, immediately begins to stock up on canned foods, dry goods, and other necessities. As the days progress, Miranda begins to realize just how difficult things are, and are becoming. School becomes less and less structured; teachers and students leave or are stricken by illness, and the cafeteria runs out of food.

I liked the concept of this novel, and thought it did an excellent job in portraying how the American public might react to a futuristic catastrophe, but oddly enough, I did not find Miranda to be a very likable character. I much rather sympathize with her mother, who is doing all the planning and foresight and stockpiling. Despite picking up on what is happening and the consequences of each natural disaster, Miranda seems to be purposely oblivious to much of what is going on, and reacts selfishly whenever her mother or older brother take steps to preserve what remains of the family’s livelihood. Overall, though, Miranda has a good relationship with her family, and her mother does the best she can to provide structure and healthy boundaries for all of her children in this tumultuous situation, setting rules, goals, and encouraging them to continue their studies.

It was like one of those lists on the radio to let you know which schools were having snow days. Only instead of it being school districts in the area, it was whole cities, and it wasn't just snow. (24)
