Waiting on Wesnesday (32)--This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Release Date: April 1, 2010 from Harcourt Children's Books
It's been a year since a meteor collided with the moon, catastrophically altering the earth’s climate. For Miranda Evans life as she knew it no longer exists. Her friends and neighbors are dead, the landscape is frozen, and food is increasingly scarce.
The struggle to survive intensifies when Miranda’s father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow. One of the newcomers is Alex Morales, and as Miranda’s complicated feelings for him turn to love, his plans for his future thwart their relationship. Then a devastating tornado hits the town of Howell, and Miranda makes a decision that will change their lives forever.
I love this series!!! And I am so glad that we are getting back to Miranda's story, while including Alex at the same time. It's about time these two incredible characters meet. These books are two of the most heartbreakingly beautiful books I've ever read. Pfeffer has a gift and I cannot wait to see that gift at work once again. Can't wait!!!!
