Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson
On an ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia awakes to
discover that something has happened to the rotation of the earth. The
days and nights are growing longer and longer; gravity is affected; the
birds, the tides, human behavior, and cosmic rhythms are thrown into
disarray. In a world that seems filled with danger and loss, Julia also
must face surprising developments in herself, and in her personal
world--divisions widening between her parents, strange behavior by her
friends, the pain and vulnerability of first love, a growing sense of
isolation, and a surprising, rebellious new strength. With crystalline
prose and the indelible magic of a born storyteller, Karen Thompson
Walker gives us a breathtaking portrait of people finding ways to go on
in an ever-evolving world.
