As you may know from Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone, Alex and Julie Morales, and Miranda and her family continue to struggle for survival in an environment ravaged by having the moon in closer orbit to the earth, for more than a year now.  The new normal involves no sunlight, being hungry most of the time, and working to locate items you may need from the homes of those who are dead or gone.  While Miranda, her mother, and two brothers have been living in their home in Pennsylvania barely surviving on food rations, her father, his new wife, and brand new baby, along with a motley assortment of others in their traveling band return from the West.  With more mouths to feed than they probably can, Miranda’s mother still welcomes them all into her home much to Miranda’s annoyance.  But by the end of the book, where everyone will sleep and what they will eat will be the last of Miranda’s worries.

The story is pretty interesting. Scarcity can lead to a lot of things and this include the changes in human behavior. People tend to act differently when faced to the fact that they are lacking the necessary resources to survive. Some people tend to become generous, other people becomes utterly selfish and cruel. Imagining the lengths of what desperation can do to human nature is just amazing. I hope I can find a copy of this book somewhere, surely I’ll be up all night reading it.
