Wow, this story was actually pretty freaky. It was spot-on with all the apocalypse, end-of-the-world movies that are really popular. Even though the book was a journal, it was really well-written, with the right amount of despair and faith that everything will turn out okay. I was so engrossed in the story, that I did not want to put the book down. I needed to find out what happened! It even made me think about my own life; what if there was no school, food, or electricity? It's scary, but theoretically something like this could occur. The characters were well thought out, and I especially liked Miranda. She was a good narrator: hopeful, yet realistic; enduring, yet other times weak. All these traits made her human. She wasn't Superwoman, but she wasn't a coward either. I would recommend this to anyone who likes science fiction, or even just a suspenseful story.
