Right now I am reading The Shade of the Moon by Susan Beth Pfeffer. This is the fourth book in the Life as We Knew it series. The first book Life as We Knew it was about a young teenager, Miranda who survived a cataclysmic event that killed billions of people on earth. Miranda, her mother and brothers struggled survive as food became scare and her father and pregnant stepmother joined them in their home in Pennsylvania.
One thing that is interesting about the series is that in the second book The Dead and the Gone Pfeffer decided to follow other survivors Alex Morales and his sister Julie. In the third book both surviving families unit and Miranda ends up marrying Alex soon after his sister is killed during a tornado.
The series is about survival and relationships. The fourth book so far centers the story of Miranda’s younger brother Jon.
