Susan Beth Pfeffer's Life as We Knew It enthralled and devastated listeners 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 new novel explores how a young man takes on unimaginable responsibilities.

I became so tired of the 'he said', 'he said' which I consider poor writing & if one is listening to it it become too tedious. Although I often like books that are geared to age groups, this was a bit too 'youthful' for me. Quick return.

pretty good story line. Kept you hooked to see what will come. Actually listened to this book last. In the 3rd book Miranda meets Alex, kind of nice to meet him first and then hear his story in New York.

The only anoyance is the Author's over use of the word 'said', he said, she said, matt said etc.......
