Cameron Pearce | 2 comments I have recently started to read a novel that was published in March of this year titled "we all looked up". the book is about the average American high school with the average American stereotypes and they bond together over the period of a couple of months. Did I mention that the threat of an asteroid wiping out all life on Earth is constantly hanging over everyone's head. I suggest we read this book. Summary: It's kinda like the breakfast club meets the apocalypse.

You could check your public library system, mine has some copies but a long request list just now.
Summary:
Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel. They always say that high school is the best time of your life. Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried "they" might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can't wait to escape Seattle-and her reputation-and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn't understand all the fuss about college and career-the future can wait. Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors-along with the rest of the planet-wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they're going to spend what remains of the present.
