Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

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.

oppinion: Life as we knew it is a fiction novel told in diary format. the diary follows the life of miranda a teenage girl living in pennsylvania. her world is torn apart when a meteor hits the moon making it much larger and closer to earth shocking people and leaving them terrified. Could the world really be coming to an end? Life As We Knew it reminds me of a cross between The Diar Of Ann Frank because it is written in diary format and tell the story of an unimaginable world. And the movie, The Day After Tomorrow because it shows the world with horrible natural disasters. This book will make you appreciate the smallest things in life. I found Life As We Knew It an easy read and very hard to put down. Overall, i would definetly put this book at the top of your list!
