Karen Thompson Walker - The Age of Miracles

In this sparkling debut, which Nathan Englander calls “pure magnificence,” and Dani Shapiro calls “gripping from first page to last,” eleven-year-old Julia and her family wake up to realize that the Earth’s rotation has slowed. As the planet spins towards an apocalyptic halt, Julia must deal with the trials of growing up—first love, lost friends, and the fissures in her parents’ marriage.
