The Dead and the Gone: 06/23/14
The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer is a companion book to Life as We Know It. The book revisits the original event but from the vantage point of New York City.
Alex Morales has to keep his family together after his parents go missing in the huge tidal waves immediately following the change in the moon's orbit.
On the one hand it was nice to see that the cities did actually stand. In Life as We Knew It the fate of the cities is left in the air. But I didn't really want to go through the same events again. I didn't want to get emotionally tied up with another family and watch key loved ones get injured, sick, and die.
The third book returns to the original plot and I do plan to read it. The Dead and the Gone though can be skipped.
