The Age of MiraclesThe Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is the coming-of-age story of Julia who learns about love and her family when the earth begins slowing its rotation, causing days and nights to become gradually longer and longer. Soon, gravity is affected as are peoples' physical and emotional well-being. It is a moving and at times terrifying story about confronting expectations, such as whether the sun will rise in the morning, and what happens when those expectations are confounded.



(This review is based on an advanced readers' copy of this book. The book is due out in June 2012.)
