A companion to Life as We Knew It, this book looks at the same events, but in a different setting and with different characters. Instead of a teen and her mom in a rural area, we meet Alex and his sisters in New York City. Their parents are among the missing after an asteroid hits the moon, setting off devastating climate change. Alex must take charge of his family, ensuring that they get the food they need, stay warm, and continue to go to school while the schools remain open. This family's faith is what keeps them together as the situation in the city becomes increasingly bleak. What would you do if you had to make hard choices with limited resources? Find out how far Alex will go to protect his family in the darkest of times in this thought provoking book.
