In our current world, things like earthquakes in New Zealand, volcanic eruptions in Iceland and tsunami warnings seem to be common place. There is no rhyme or reason to it; it just happens.

Now, imagine out world, where these things happen, except that volcano is in Nebraska. And Nevada and who knows where else. All of these things are happening because a meteor hit the moon and pushed it closer to the earth. Tides have changed, volcanic ash blocks out the sun, it’s cold all the time and people are dying of starvation.

This World We Live In is the third book in a series. The first two books chronicle the lives of Miranda and Alex and how they struggle to live and survive in the days and months after the moon was hit. This book picks up a month after the last two ended and continues the story of how life on earth has changed with no crops and fresh food is all but a memory. Can people survive or is this the end of the world we live in?
