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:

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.
