Teen Book Review: “Life As We Knew It” by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Life As We Knew It explores what happens to an ordinary family in a normal American town when their world changes forever. An asteroid hits the moon, knocking it into a closer orbit. This causes all kinds of disasters that bring the world to a halt. Without shops, food, electricity, heat and water, Miranda and her family face problems together and struggle to survive. Miranda has to undergo a lot of changes and finds herself dealing with internal and external struggles. She soon ends up having to question whether or not she will sacrifice herself for her family or survive and watch her family struggle. Life As We Knew It is an interesting sci fi teen book for both boys and girls.
