The Shade of the Moon by Susan Beth Pfeffer

The Shade of the Moon (The Last Survivors, #4)

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!

Releases: August 13, 2013

Books 1, 2, and 3 in the series:

Life As We Knew It (Last Survivors, #1)  The Dead and the Gone (Last Survivors, #2)  This World We Live In (Last Survivors, #3)

  1. Excited to find out that there is a 4th book in the Pfeffer series. I did like those, although Miranda’s story line was my favorite. My students loved Ashfall and Ashen Winter — yes long, but still an addictive read. And there is a third book in that series too — Sunrise. Don’t know about a release date yet.
