Book: Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Genre: YA SF... sort of
Here's the book I read for one of my book groups this month. It's a book I'd never heard of until this past month, and then suddenly, I'm hearing about it all over the place. Funny how that happens, huh?
It's a story about the end of the world. When the moon is hit by a meteor, it throws it out of kilter, and lots of disasters start happening which cause life, as we knew it, to change drastically. The story follows one particular family and how they cope and survive. Among other things, (like the power of family and sacrifice and survival), it also presents very strong argument for planning ahead and storing food for emergencies!
So, yeah, I totally enjoyed it, even though it stressed me out a bit, just imagining going through something like this.
