We Revisit Age of Miracles with Our Colleague Sherry Virtz
Last year in a post about the popularity of the post-apocalyptic genre in fiction and it’s crossover appeal for both teens and adults, Deanna raved about AGE OF MIRACLES by Karen Thompson Walker. Named one of the best books of the year by People, O: The Oprah Magazine, Financial Times, Kansas City Star, BookPage, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly and Booklist, Age of Miracles is now out in paperback. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, perhaps our RH adult colleague Sherry Virtz can convince you to pick it up!
Debut, coming of age novel told through the voice of Julia, sixth grade student living in beautiful California. Setting is slightly futuristic but the writing and timing make it completely plausible. While dealing with everyday 6th grade issues of school and family an even larger catastrophe is happening – the earth’s rotation is slowing at an alarming rate. Causing strange behavior among humans and animals. Themes of global warming, social classes, fitting in, family dynamics and more.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did.
