reviewed on + 674 more book reviews


11-year-old Julia tells the story beginning on a normal Saturday when news of "the slowing" first occurs and leads us through the devastating consequences. (Though we never learn the source of the slowing.) It is a very personal story as her world changes her family, friends, neighbors and all of humanity. It is a coming of age story with some of the everyday middle school issues, but in a world where everything is uncertain. It is a story of family. In the end, it is more of a beautiful tale of mankind and who we are. Moving and unique.
