Read from January 14 to 15, 2013

This book was both simple and complex. In this novel, the characters are informed that the world is slowing, and because of the physical, biological and chemical ramifications of this, the earth is dying. But they are faced with the dilemma: how can we as human beings carry on and live our lives, make friendships, grow older?

I was swept away by the concept of this book and pleased by the way the author dealt with the possibility. Telling the story through an 11-year-old narrator really struck home the idea of a changing world and loss of innocence.

A beautiful story.
