The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

Heart-stopper: Get ready for goose bumps. This haunting and soul-stirring novel about the apocalypse is transformative and unforgettable. Plot notes: When an earthquake causes the world to slowly stop spinning, 11-year-old Julia learns to embrace small, everyday disasters—dysfunctional family members, a first love, adolescence—to find the strength to face a global crisis. In the know: The film rights have already been optioned. Read the book to stay ahead of the curve.
