The moon is closer and now gas is more than $10 a gallon, all the grocery stores are out of food, and school is closed indefinitely. Is the worst yet to come?
Miranda's life has completely changed forever. The moon has been struck by an asteroid and is now completely out of its normal orbit. Fierce thunderstorms, tsunamis, and volcanoes have destroyed the coastlines and everything the world has known before. What challenges will Miranda and her family face? Will she ever see her Dad, Lisa, and grandma ever again? Will things ever be normal again? How much worse can things really get? Will life ever be as we knew it?
