Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Susan Beth PfeffersLife as We Knew Itenthralled and devastated readers with its brutal but hopeful look at an apocalyptic event--an asteroid hitting the moon, setting off a tailspin of horrific climate changes. Now this harrowing companion novel examines the same events as they unfold in New York City, revealed through the eyes of seventeen-year-old Puerto Rican Alex Morales. When Alex's parents disappear in the aftermath of tidal waves, he must care for his two younger sisters, even as Manhattan becomes a deadly wasteland, and food and aid dwindle.

     With haunting themes of family, faith, personal change, and courage, this powerful novel explores how a young man takes on unimaginable responsibilities.

Synopsis:

When an asteroid hits the moon, Miranda must learn to survive the unimaginable . . .

Synopsis:

The highly anticipated follow-up to Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone

Synopsis:

The galaxy-spanning conclusion to Amy Rose Capetta's acclaimed sci-fi debut, Entangled.

Synopsis:

In the riveting conclusion to Amy Rose Capetta's out-of-this-world sci-fi fantasy, Cadence is in a race against time and space to save her family and friends from the Unmakers, who are tracking the last vestiges of humanity across the galaxy. In the final battle, the universe spins out of control...and Cade alone must face the music.

Synopsis:

A rock star on her home planet of Andana, seventeen-year-old Cade now has to use her unique talents to do nothing less than save the human race from the Unmakers. As Cade struggles to stay close to her strong-willed crew and get even closer to Rennik, the ship’s fascinating and frustrating pilot, her life becomes a tangle of love, death, and lyrics. This suspenseful sequel to Entangled is akin to the beloved Firefly series, complete with warring spaceships, warped villains, and a universe-altering conclusion.

Synopsis:

Its been a year since a meteor collided with the moon, catastrophically altering the earths climate. For Miranda Evans, life as she knew it no longer exists. Her friends and neighbors are dead, the landscape is frozen, and food is increasingly scarce.
 
The struggle to survive intensifies when Mirandas father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow. One of the newcomers is Alex Morales, and as Mirandas complicated feelings for him turn to love, his plans for his future thwart their relationship. Then a devastating tornado hits the town of Howell, and Miranda makes a decision that will change their lives forever.
