Stacey's Picks: The Last Survivors Series by Susan Beth Pfeffer. In one brief moment, life as we know it changes. An asteroid hits the moon, knocking it out of its orbit and closer to Earth. The gravitational effects on Earth are devestating: mass flooding, volcano eruptions, climate change and more. This trilogy looks at these events from the standpoints of two teens: Miranda in Pennsylvania and Alex in NYC. Fascinating reads, though "The Dead and Gone" is by far my favorite of the series!
