Ick. Not a fan of this book. I was very disappointed because I really enjoyed her first book, "The Devil Wears Prada." This book relies on name- and brand-dropping. I also had a difficult time figuring out what the point was...HOWEVER, I really enjoyed the way this book ended. The last two chapters were great.
This book is about a girl who's world turns upside down when a meteor hits the moon. The people of Earth knew about the meteor but were unaware of its size and force. When the moon gets knocked closer to Earth by the meteor all the weather goes crazy, radio signals get messed up, and everybody watches in awe. The impact of the meteor psychologically is immediate. People start pulling their kids out of school, stocking up on essentials, and start moving away to find a different place. The things that make this book unique is that it's written as a diary. Even as a diary, you can see the hardships that the whole family faced and the shock and horror of a new world that they must adapt to. The thing that made me want to read the book was that it was about a girl my age who had to face a world crisis and showed her inner thoughts on it. It made me think about modern society and what would happen if this really DID take place. Something that could make you not want to read it, is that it's not the happiest story in the world, but it is a good read.
Cute and funny and fun...I like:)
