When Miranda first hears the warnings that a meteor is headed on a collision path with the moon, they just sound like an excuse for extra homework assignments. But her disbelief turns to fear in a split second as the entire world witnesses a lunar impact that knocks the moon closer in orbit, catastrophically altering the earth’s climate.

Everything else in Miranda’s life fades away as supermarkets run out of food, gas goes up to more than ten dollars a gallon, and school is closed indefinitely. But what Miranda and her family don’t realize is that the worst is yet to come.

Told in Miranda’s diary entries, this is a heart-pounding account of her struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all–hope–in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar time. Download and start listening now!

    " A story set out in a diary fashion of a young woman's struggles with her family after an asteroid hits the moon. The story is quite slow moving with very little story progression or character development. "

    " 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... "
