It is a science fiction novel that seems very feasible at the same time. Written in the form of a diary, a teenage girl named Miranda describes the events that happen when a huge asteroid strikes the moon and knocks it out of orbit, closer to Earth. This causes many cataclysmic events to happen on earth and those who live must find a way to survive. Not only do the characters find ways to survive, this book also points out situations that could arrive In the event of a major catastrophe that I hadn't considered. It was a book I couldn't put down.
Miranda's family lived in Pennsylvania, away from the ocean where other horrific events were happening. The next book in the series, entitled The Dead and the Gone is set in NYC. It is the story of a young man named Alex and his two sisters. Their parents disappeared after the devastating tidal waves and floods began after the asteroid struck the moon. The story is sad, yet intriguing.
