Explain how the characters are responding/adapting to the central conflict in the text.
In The Age of Miracles the earth has begun to slow down and people are beginning to panic. The adults were more worried than the children because they understand what this means and what can happen. The story takes place in a californian home with a small family that is just learning about the slowing and are scared about it. A few days later, the children go back to school. Teachers are attempting to reassure students and are explaining what could happen, and some are reassuring themselves that everything will be okay.
