Publisher's Summary

It's been a year since a meteor collided with the moon, catastrophically altering the earth's climate. For Miranda Evans life as she knew it no longer exists. Her friends and neighbors are dead, the landscape is frozen, and food is increasingly scarce. The struggle to survive intensifies when Miranda's father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow. One of the newcomers is Alex Morales, and as Miranda's complicated feelings for him turn to love, his plans for his future thwart their relationship. Then a devastating tornado hits the town of Howell, and Miranda makes a decision that will change their lives forever.

Wish I Had Stopped After the First Book...

I haven't read "The Dead and the Gone". I was going to read Alex's tale after this one but doubt I will now. I really enjoyed "Life as We Knew It" but could barely finish this book. I literally felt like I was listening to a difference series.

As another reviewer pointed out, the characters did things that were COMPLETELY out of character. And not in a learning a character going down a difficult road to find their way back to who they really are - that would have been great. But no - these characters seemed like totally different people for no reason at all of the sudden, this family seemed to care very little for each other.

And our heroine seems to have regressed in maturity about 4 years while gaining a huge helping of selfishness!! I REALLY wish I hadn't listened this one!

Buy the text version - avoid this annoying voice.

The reader for this audiobook speaks in an annoying, perky baby voice, like a stereotypical annoying cheerleader who's trying a baby voice to be cute. The character whose first-person POV she's representing is a girl in her late teens, not a toddler, and she's not perky at all, but rather depressed. It's completely unlistenable and I wish I could get my money back.
