by Susan Beth Pfeffer
This is the second of three books that tell the story of different families who must survive horrible natural disasters when a meteor hits the moon and pushes it into the Earth's gravitational pull.
Not exactly like what's happening with all the flooding and tornadoes in the south and the earthquake in Japan, but a similar type of survival situation. There is so much action and sadness that each page is filled with events both wearying and terrifying and the characters are infused with honest emotions.
