The Dead and the Gone ( Life As We Knew It (Last Survivors)) (Reprint) (Paperback) by Susan Beth Pfeffer
About this item
This intense young adult novel describes how the apocalyptic fallout of an asteroid pulling the moon out of orbit affects a tightly knit Puerto Rican family in New York City. At 17, Alex Morales is hard-working and responsible, qualities that serve him well in caring for his younger sisters when his parents don't return home after the disaster. In this gripping companion novel to the chilling LIFE AS WE KNEW IT, a cascade of difficult moral decisions and a shaken faith in God are explored.
After a meteor hits the moon and sets off a series of horrific climate changes, seventeen-year-old Alex Morales must take care of his sisters alone in the chaos of New York City.
