In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a post where I tell you the books that I received this week either by buying them from the bookstore, going to the library or from my mailbox. In My Mailbox was created by Alea and turned into a meme by Kristi.

The Dead and The Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer

An asteroid knocks the moon closer to Earth, and every conceivable natural disaster occurs. Seventeen-year-old Alex Morales's parents are missing and presumed drowned by tsunamis. Left alone, he struggles to care for his sisters Bri, 14, and Julie, 12. Things look up as Central Park is turned into farmland and food begins to grow. Then worldwide volcanic eruptions coat the sky with ash and the land freezes permanently. People starve, freeze, or die of the flu. Only the poor are left in New York—a doomed island—while the rich light out for safe towns inland and south.

It sounds just as good as the previous books, which I still haven't read. Love the cover too! Have a great week!

I haven't seen this book. Is it fairly new? I sure sounds interesting..though I'm afraid it could have one of those tragic endings. Like Forest of Hands and Teeth did. I'm a happy-go-lucky ending kind of a person so I'll be curious to see how it is.
