Life As We Knew It introduces the reader to the struggles one may face during a time of extreme natural disaster. The author had a great idea here and obviously did her research.

However, I couldn't finish it. It felt like I was reading a 3rd or 4th grader's diary. It included all the important daily events, of course, but lacked the emotion and depth that I would expect to find in a high school student's diary. That, and the lack of suspense, stopped me from continuing past the first half.
