We Revisit Age of Miracles with Our Colleague Sherry Virtz

February 6, 2013

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!

From Sherry:

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.

Thank you, Sherry, for contributing to RAoR!  We love to hear from our colleagues who sell adult books to our customers.  Let us know if there’s anything you’d like to read from them in the future!

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in
    the direction of a good platform.
