Book Talk: The Age of Miracles

The Age of Miracles is a fascinating read. Julia, age 11, is the main character. 
In the first chapter, the reader learns that the earth has suddenly shifted. The days get longer and longer. First by 53 minutes. Then by a few hours, and eventually the days are 60 hours long. This obviously has catastrophic effects on the planet. 

The book is the story of Julia and her family - 1 part coming of age story and 1 part end of times/sci-fi. 

I liked it! It's the author's first novel, and she did a great job!
