Miranda and her family are basically suffering. they have to deal with the darkness and food and probably do not enjoy it. With that the characters are know gonna have to get used to living in poverty. If the moon did get knocked closer in real life it might be worse than having Donald Trump as president. This book made me learn how the moon could affect us mentally and physically. This book was definitely well written to connect you to this world in which disasters occur. it addresses things to make you care about your planet and take care of it. I enjoyed this book in a way that i can explain. usually books have a connection towards me that i wouldn't be able to really explain but this book. If the moon got knocked closer to earth, i would build a shelter tall in a red would tree so i could survive.
