A year after a meteor moves the moon into a closer Earth orbit, Miranda and her family are among the survivors. Many people have died; distribution of previously expected services and goods is erratic if at all. Living day to day is a struggle that means life or death and death is a constant in this new world. Sixteen year old Miranda tells her story through her diary.She meets Alex Morales from The Dead and the Gone, falls in love, sees her home destroyed, and moves forward struggling with survival. “The house is gone, Howell may be gone, but there is a world to live in, a world that needs us.”
This third book in the Survivors trilogy can stand alone as well as pull together the plot lines from the previous two titles. The story provides an open ended summation to the series. 239 pages
