As the days get shorter with the approaching winter, have you ever thought what would happen if the days started getting longer, even longer than the 24 hour cycle? That's what is happening in The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. As the earth's rotation starts to slow, the country is forced to decide how to cope - there are those, in the majority, who continue to live days in 24 hour increments and those who mark the length of days by sun up and sun down. Teenage Julia copes with these changes, along with her family reactions, the change to the environment, her first love and how people who don't follow the "rules" are treated differently. This is a beautifully written coming of age tale that will resonate with readers. To see a previous review of Age of Miracles, click here.
