Life As We Knew It
by Susan Beth Pfeffer
This is a great book! Miranda writes in her journal –
“All of a sudden this moon thing is the biggest thing ever… Wednesday night we’re all going to be outside watching the asteroid hit the moon.”
“I know I can’t explain, because I don’t really know what happened and I sure don’t know why. But the moon wasn’t a half moon anymore. It was tilted and wrong and a three-quarter moon and it got larger, way larger, large like a moon rising on the horizon, only it wasn’t rising. It was smack in the middle of the sky, way too big, way too visible.”
And so it happens. The moon is hit by an asteroid, and is pushed out of its orbit, closer to Earth. Through Miranda’s journal entries, you see what happens when civilization is affected by the significant climate changes an altered moon thrusts upon the Earth.
