From the Publisher
Annotation Until an enormous meteor hit the moon and knocked it out of orbit, wreaking environmental havoc on earth, Miranda worried about ordinary teen issues such as the boy she likes, her father?s new wife?s pregnancy, and her best friend?s religious transformation. Now, holed up with her mother and brothers in rural Pennsylvania, Miranda wonders about her future as she watches the world crumble under tsunamis, flu epidemics, and earthquakes. This gripping young-adult novel raises a host of fascinating issues.
First Line Lisa is pregnant. Dad called around 11 o'clock to let us know. Only Mom has already taken Jonny to his baseball practice and of course Matt isn't home from college yet, so I was alone to get the big news.
