Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

I have to say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. I am absolutely in love with this book. It was great from beginning to end. I don’t want to say too much, because it is one of those story’s that you need to find out the details on your own and be wowed by them or shocked. But I will give a short summary of it.

Miranda, Matt, Jonny and their mother find themselves surviving a major world disaster. (What kind of disaster? Read it to find out) They have to learn how to survive with each other and not lose their minds in the process. This is an awesome survival story that will make you think about how we all take each other and our world for granted. While I was reading it and even now, I would dream about this story and how it would affect my life. I caught myself thinking about the story even when I was at work or driving in my car. This is unusual for me, unless I’m completely into a book. And with this I was, I couldn’t imagine being in their shoes and staying sane. I truly felt sympathy for all the characters. The fact that I even felt anything tells me how great of a story this is, I will definitely recommend this book to people. I think everyone should read this story just to let us know that we aren’t as safe as we want ourselves to believe and that at any moment our lives can change. The question is…will we be able to handle it?
