Life as we knew it
by Susan Beth Pfeffer
pg. o-72
In my new book Miranda has just experianced what she believes might be the end of the world. An external conflict in the book would be Miranda fighting with her parents about how to live. She thinks they need to move and find a larger population of people, but her mother thinks they need to stay where they are and stock up on supplies and live as long as they can. An internal confict is between Miranda and her thoughts on her friends. Her friends have changed since the meteor hit the moon. Sammi has be living at her church and hangs out with her fellow worshippers. Megan has not be at school and Miranda wants to get in contact with her to make sure she is ok.


  1. This book sounds like it is going to create a conflict between Miranda and her mother in the future. Does Miranda and her mother have a good relationship now? Or do they have a hateful family relationship? I think that could give another clue as to what will happen next.

  2. What is this book about why do they need to stock up on supplies and why do they live on the moon?
