Level of Awesome
Before the asteroid we let ourselves be defined by labels: The athlete, the outcast, the slacker, the overachiever.
But then we all looked up and everything changed.
They said it would be here in two months. That gave us two months to leave our labels behind. Two months to become something bigger than what we’d been, something that would last even after the end.
Two months to really live.
I was genuinely really excited when I read the book blurb (above). The premise screamed a really interesting mix of ‘The Breakfast Club’ (one of my favourite 80’s movies!) and Karen Thompson Walker’s ‘The Age of Miracles’. Unfortunately this book didn’t quite hit its mark and by the end really fell flat.
The best books, they don’t talk about things you never thought about before. They talk about things you’d always thought about, but that you didn’t think anyone else thought about. You read them, and suddenly you’re a little bit less alone in the world.Tommy Wallach
