Through diary entries, Miranda tells the story of struggle and survival when a meteor strikes the moon and changes life on Earth forever.

Miranda doesn’t believe warnings about a meteor that’s headed on a collision path with the moon. Her disbelief turns to fear in a split second, as the world witnesses a lunar impact that knocks the moon closer to the Earth, causing worldwide tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and a flu epidemic. As summer turns to an arctic winter almost overnight, Miranda and her family retreat to the unexpected safe have of their sunroom–subsisting on stockpiled food and with limited water and electricity. This is the story of Miranda’s attempts to hold on to the most important resource of all–hope.

    " Life as we Knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer is about a girl named Miranda and her family. They try to make it through catastrophes caused by the an asteroid hitting the moon and making it come closer to earth. They survive world wide tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and much more. I personally, did not like this book very much. One reason is because it is a diary, and because of that it says every think that happened to her in the entire day. For example, it says what she had for breakfast if she had it, lunch if she had it, and dinner, every single day. I also thought the ending did not answer very many questions, but i guess that is what the other books are for. I recommend this book to anyone who likes diary books, or apocalyptic books. "

    " I only got through the 3rd chapter. I am good at suspending my disbelief but this was too much. The science concerning the moon, and there should be some science, was off, way off. After taking my concerns to my science geek daughter, she has the geology degree, I just couldn't keep reading. There are so many things this author could have done to make the 'event' more plausible. Moving on... "

    " This book is written for teens. It was a bit hard to sit and listen through the teeny bopper parts, especially at the begining. This would be a good book to try and make teens aware of some of the problems associated with a collapse of our infrastructure. It did have a happy ending . . . well, as happy as could be expected. The story was too predictable. But it was written for kids... "

    " I read it becasue so many of my students were reading it, it was written in a journal format, an interesting concept - what woould happen if a huge asteroid hit the moon, what woud happen to us. It was alittle sad and not very well developed in places, but not too bad "
