rating: 4 of 5 stars
Survival literature is what this book should be called although I hear that it is a young adult book. Referred to me by a friend, I was interested in a diasaster read and the book looked to be a fairly quick read. The novel focuses on a girl named Miranda and her diary's through an apocalyptic disaster. From worries about high school and boys to worries on how to survive with rationed food, no water and no electrcity. This book will depress you and make you paranoid beyond belief. You will be checking to make sure you have a supply of bottled water, looking at your canned goods and making sure you have supplies of medicine and batteries. From diary entry to diary entry, the reader progresses through the harrowing events caused by the moon being knocked too close to Earth. Volcanos, earthquakes and of course tidal waves ensue. Looting, violence and scavaging abound...and through it all a girl becomes a woman.
