We All Looked Up
With an asteroid heading toward Earth and only two months until impact, a group of typical teenagers are forced to discover what life means to them and what they hope to do with what’s left. Will Peter, the heroic athlete, save those closest to him? Will Eliza, the promiscuous blogger, change her mind about love? Will Andy, the desperate slacker, learn to take things seriously? Will Anita, the smart musician, abandon the strict rules of her parents to follow her dream? Impending disaster has a way of inspiring a search for answers, and as these four unlikely friends connect, they realize the end might just be the beginning of everything they’ve ever wanted.
Interweaving multiple points of view seamlessly, the author introduces realistic reactions to the high stakes such a cosmic collision promises. The simple structure and dialogue wonderfully juxtapose the urgency and widespread panic the plot produces. I was definitely drawn in and inevitably contemplated my own response to the idea of being extinguished—a question that plagues and fascinates every heart.
