Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer



I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this book. I'd heard that it was un-put-downable and, boy, were they right!

It's told through Miranda's eyes and I love the fact that she isn't perfect. She and her family must survive a catastrophic situation and the way it's handled really says so much about them. It captured my imagination and I've even had a dream about it!

I just wish I hadn't finished it so quickly. I miss Miranda!

I had to laugh at the "wish I hadn't read it so fast" part. I had planned to read it just as Becky had the schedule set up. I had no self-control! Finished it on Sunday, but all week long the book, the characters and everything about them stayed with me.

What a SUPER book!

I hadn't heard of this book until reading about it on your blog. I love a story and characters that stay with you, so I'll be adding this one to my reading list!
