Waiting on Wednesday: This World We Live In

This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Publication Date: April 1, 2010

About the book: 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.

About the author: SUSAN BETH PFEFFER's first two apocalyptic novels, Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone, were widely praised by reviewers as action-packed, thrilling, and utterly terrifying. Life As We Knew It received numerous starred reviews and honors and was nominated for many state awards. Ms. Pfeffer lives in Middletown, New York.

I just finished the second book in this series, The Dead and the Gone and can't wait for this third book to come out!!!

You can read book 3 now if you read an e-book copy on your computer or e-reader - you can get an advanced galley from NetGalley.com. I'm halfway through - it's just as good so far!
