What an amazing book! And heart-pounding! And sad! And terrifying! And disturbing! I could go on and on but I think you get the picture! Life as we Knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer tells the horrifying story of Miranda and her family after a meteor knocks the moon closer to earth. The horror is unimaginable. It was very difficult to read this book. At times I would be crying and other times I would be so hopeful. It was a rollercoaster of emotions. I had to force myself to put the book down even though I didn't want to. I actually had a few bad dreams because of this book. But don't let that put you off. It was an amazing story. Miranda and her family go through ordeals that I wouldn't wish on anyone! The best thing about the book is how they are able to hope and try to live life in the midst of chaos! The ending had me on the edge of my seat! Find out what happens for yourself!
