Publisher's Summary

Susan Beth Pfeffer's Life as We Knew It enthralled and devastated listeners with its brutal but hopeful look at an apocalyptic event - an asteroid hitting the moon, setting off a tailspin of horrific climate changes. Now this harrowing companion novel examines the same events as they unfold in New York City, revealed through the eyes of 17-year-old Puerto Rican Alex Morales. When Alex's parents disappear in the aftermath of tidal waves, he must care for his two younger sisters, even as Manhattan becomes a deadly wasteland, and food and aid dwindle.With haunting themes of family, faith, personal change, and courage, this powerful new novel explores how a young man takes on unimaginable responsibilities.

A pretty good book

Any additional comments?

The narrator was acceptable. The story was pretty good, however grew a little tired of the excess Catholicism. Perhaps the author felt this was needed to build the main characters. The actions of the characters left that hollow if this was the case.

Great series!

I readily enjoy apocalyptic novels. Scary to think of how these things can really happen, but interesting!
