Life as we knew it by Susan Pfeffer

published by Scholastic No shops.  No TV.  No phones.  No electricity.  No daylight.  No idea who is alive or dead…

When a meteor crashes into the Moon, it knocks the Moon’s orbit a bit closer to the Earth, causing tidal waves, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. Told in journal entries, this is the story of 16 year old Miranda’s struggle to hold on to hope in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world. When so many people are giving up hope, starving, and dying of diseases Miranda, her mother and two brothers must try to survive. When food, water and power shortages along with extreme weather take hold her family is forced to make tough choices while they consider their increasingly limited options.
