Review: This World We Live In

This World We Live In
by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Harcourt Children's Book, (2010)
I received this free ebook from NetGalley.

I admit I hadn't read the two previous books of these series, so my thoughts concerned just this third book.

Miranda is a girl who tells the story of her family and friends after a disaster: a meteor hit and move the moon close to the earth. Apart from this science fiction's event the story is very plain, some bike riding, and a love story.

This book is structured like a journal wrote by Miranda.

Pfeffer uses the obsolete idea about a deserted world, many dead bodies, nothing to eat, and so on. "The things we used to take for granted. Water. Power. Sunlight" (p.6) are vanished.

In my opinion this is a good educational book for kids: the question 'What could we do without sun, water, food?' The answer is in this book. Beyond an educational target I don't recommend this book to science fiction's fun.
