I stayed home for a little longer this morning to see the rocket blast into the moon’s surface. Well the news coverage was less than spectacular and ended up being mostly nasa folks high fiving themselves and clapping. But the freaky thing, it immediately reminded me of the Young Adult novel, Life as We Knew It. What a great book, and it was only an asteroid hitting the moon not some giant rocket. Hope those guys at NASA read it first.
Here’s a review from TeenReads, and speaking of teens reading, check out the information about Teen Read Month in Oklahoma. Thank you Young Bill for bringing it to our attention while I was away. http://blog.newsok.com/okiereads/2009/10/02/beyond-reality/
This would be a perfect book to start the reading fever. Scary in a reality sort of way, and very well written.
