The conclusion to the "Life As We Knew It" series
Four years ago, a meteor crashed into the moon, altering the Earth's gravity; the world is an ever-bleaker place.
Seventeen-year-old Jon Evans, the younger brother of Miranda, lives with his stepmother and half brother in an enclave called Sexton.
After countless natural disasters and proliferating disease, humanity is now plagued by rigidly cruel class stratification, in which a person is either a respected "claver" or a disdained "grub," a system so ingrained that Jon struggles to understand whether or not he thinks it is right.
Jon is aware that, in this new safe-town in which he lives, a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can jeopardize his life and even Miranda's life, though she lives outside the walls of Sexton.
Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world
gone so terribly wrong?
