Publisher's Summary

Miranda's disbelief turns to fear in a split second when a meteor knocks the Moon closer to the Earth. How should her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis wipe out the coasts, earthquakes rock the continents, and volcanic ash blocks out the sun?

As summer turns to Arctic winter, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove.

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.

Thought provoking and not a littte scary

This book is absorbing and very thought provoking. I am listening avidly but will not let my ten year old hear it yet. I think young adult is definitely the category here. The book is well written and the narration is excellent.

A must read for everyone

If you could sum up Life as We Knew It in three words, what would they be?

Could it happen?

Any additional comments?

This is a fantastic series of books, but I actually preferred to read these rather than listen to them.
