Publisher Description

Susan Beth Pfeffer’s Life as We Knew It enthralled and devastated readers 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 seventeen-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 novel explores how a young man takes on unimaginable responsibilities.

Beyond Good.

There are no Words for how gripping and sensational these books are!! This one, if I had to pick one of the three, would be my favourite. 💛💛😁👌🙀

Brutal and brilliant.

Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you how often I nearly cried over this book. Despite how much it depressed me, the story Pfeffer writes is an enthralling and emotional dystopia that I found myself incapable of putting down. Definitely one of the best books I've ever read in terms of storyline and conflict.
