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.

Short & Sweet: The audio version of this book really was fantastic. Continuing the story of Miranda from Life As We Knew It, we see how life continues after the initial few months of the moon shifting because of a meteor. There are some great new characters introduced and if you thought the first book tore at your heart, this one does even more so.

Final Verdict: An eye-opening novel about what could happen when the world as you know it changes so quickly in such a short period of time.
