The Age of Miracles, by Karen Thompson Walker, Narrated by Emily Janice Card, Produced by Random House Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

This is a debut novel which combines the sixth grade year of a young girl with what is in essence an altered world. One Saturday morning, Julia and her family in California awake to the same problem as the rest of the world-for some inexplicable reason, the earth started slowing down. Each day it gets slower with days and nights growing longer. This has an effect on people’s moods, on their physical condition, on their ability to play sports as gravity is affected, on the ability of birds and other animals to survive the environment, and, finally, on the danger of being exposed at all to the sun. Set against this incredible environment, Julia suffers the loss of friends, first love, not being popular, her parents’ marital problems, and her grandfather’s eccentricity. This is a riveting debut novel.
