The Dead and The Gone
By Susan Beth Pfeffer
Blurb from Goodreads: "Susan Beth Pfeffer’s Life as We Knew It enthralled and devastated readers with its brutal but hopeful look at an apocalyptic event--an asteroid hitting the moon, setting off a tailspin of horrific climate changes. Now this harrowing companion novel examines the same events as they unfold in New York City, revealed through the eyes of seventeen-year-old Puerto Rican Alex Morales. When Alex's parents disappear in the aftermath of tidal waves, he must care for his two younger sisters, even as Manhattan becomes a deadly wasteland, and food and aid dwindle."
Okay. This is the companion novel to LIFE AS WE KNEW IT which I reviewed not long ago. I enjoyed this story very much.I caught myself lying in bed after finishing this wondering how I would be able to keep Super Spawn warm and fed. Then I had a *facepalm* moment when I realized what I was doing.
Duh. It's a book. It's not really the end of the world.
Overall, a good companion to LAWKI, and I'm looking forward to the third book.
