Life As We Knew It
by Susan Beth Pfeffer

This is a great book!  Miranda writes in her journal –

May 16th
“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.”

May 18th
“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.

Will they make it?  Will they find food and be safe?  Come check out and read Life As We Knew It today and find out!
