Waiting on Wednesday in a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that lets us gush over books we just can’t WAIT to get our hands on!
I can’t wait for…
The Shade of the Moon by Susan Beth Pfeffer
It’s been more than two years since Jon Evans and his family left Pennsylvania, hoping to find a safe place to live, yet Jon remains haunted by the deaths of those he loved. His prowess on a soccer field has guaranteed him a home in a well-protected enclave. But Jon is painfully aware that a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can put his life and the lives of his mother, his sister Miranda, and her husband, Alex, in jeopardy. Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world gone so terribly wrong? (Goodreads summary)
The Last Survivors series is a popular post-apocalyptic series in my classroom, and I know I will be adding book 4 to my classroom library. I read the first book (Life As We Knew It) last summer, and it was checked out quite a bit this year. Many of my students didn’t want to read Ashfall because it was “too big,” but many wanted more post-apocalyptic journeys and moved on to that after reading this series. I don’t have the 3rd book, so I’ll have to pick that one up too!
