This book was pretty good. It is the second book in the Life as We Knew It trilogy. It wasn't as good as the first one. It isn't about Miranda and her family. It is about another family during the time that the moon is hit by the asteroid. This is the story of 17 year old Alex Morales living in New York City when the event happens. His parents are gone (probably dead) and he is left to care for his two younger sisters. It started off slow but got really good toward the middle and end. I am really looking forward to the next book as we don't know what happens to Alex and his family at the end of this one.
