The Shade of the Moon

Susan Beth Pfeffer

In Pfeffer’s eagerly awaited addition to the Life As We Knew It series, it has been four years since a meteor knocked the moon off its orbit and changed the world forever. After countless natural disasters and proliferating disease, humanity is now plagued by a rigid and cruel class system. Seventeen-year-old Jon Evans, the younger brother of Miranda, lives with his stepmother and half- brother in a well-protected enclave called Sexton. Jon struggles to understand this terrible new world, and wonders if he can risk doing what’s right in order to survive.
