The Age of Miracles is a very interesting book.
This book has been getting a lot of media attention of late. I checked it out as a digital audio title from my local library. I listened to it on the drive to and from work, a wonderful way to spend those 40 minutes X 2 it takes. The book is thought provoking and not for elementary readers. It may be considered appropriate for upper middle but definitely high school. In it a young girl comes of age and deals with issues of growing up in an unusual time as Earth slows, thus increasing the gravitational pull and the length of days and nights. The reactions of people, as groups and individuals, and the concomitant gravity sickness that affects some people but not others are all integral to the story. The change that Earth experiences impacts life as they knew it and we know it in so many ways. What we may think of as unchangeable can change irretrievably in a very short time. I suggest you read this book, and decide for yourself what you think of it. The Age of Miracles is written by Karen Thompson Walker. I’m still thinking about it.
