In the book, "life as we knew it," there was going to be a huge once-in-a-lifetime scenario, consisting of an asteroid at subsonic speeds flying through the universe towards our moon. Citizens all over the world were very excited, but they were procrastinating about what lied ahead. Once the asteroid hit, people were shocked. The moon was suddenly huge, ramming right into Earth's orbit. People screamed, wailed, and shouted. The moon was dead-smack in the middle of the sky. The moon was too big, way too big, and it was horrifying. You could see the craters, you could see everything. Miranda, Lisa, and Jonny ran back inside like everyone else on the block, trying to find something that could tell them about what went wrong, and what happened to the moon in general. The news anchors on CNN seemed devastated, shocked like any other person that saw the scene. The anchors said that there were huge waves and tides, turning the ocean into nothing but killer machines waiting to be unleashed. There were claims of tsunamis wiping out entire cities, and we were living in this catastrophe. A catastrophe indeed, this could very well turn out to be the end of the world, end of civilization in that matter. The catastrophe leaves you worried about the characters, wanting to skip through the pages in order to find out what happens to the city Miranda lives in. This book defiantly helps me understand others feel when they get caught-up in a natural disaster such as a tsunami. It makes you shocked, and you realize there's nothing you can do about it. I would try to live life normally as best as I can, always questioning what would happen, and what would happen to me. The world is a dangerous place, and there are disasters happening every day to people all over the world, and all you can do is sit back and watch.
