The eagerly awaited addition to the series begun with the New York Times best-seller Life As We Knew It, in which a meteor knocks the moon off its orbit and the world changes forever.
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?
We're big fans of Susan's here on the blog. We read her first Last Survivors book, Life as We Knew It when it first came out, and have loved all of the sequels. We're eagerly awaiting this book!
The Shade of the Moon will be available on August 13th from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. For more information on Susan, please check out her blog, featuring background details about her books and her adorable cat Scooter!
