Life as We Knew Itby Susan Beth Pfeffer
Synopses & Reviews
When Miranda first hears the warnings that a meteor is headed on a collision path with the moon, they just sound like an excuse for extra homework assignments. But her disbelief turns to fear in a split second as the entire world witnesses a lunar impact that knocks the moon closer in orbit, catastrophically altering the earths climate.
Everything else in Mirandas life fades away as supermarkets run out of food, gas goes up to more than ten dollars a gallon, and school is closed indefinitely. But what Miranda and her family dont realize is that the worst is yet to come.
Told in Mirandas diary entries, this is a heart-pounding account of her struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all-hope-in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar time.
When a meteor hits the moon, Miranda must learn to survive the unimaginable. Told in journal entries, this is the heart-pounding story of Miranda's struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all--hope--in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world. Unabridged. 4 CDs.
