Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson WalkerOne morning protagonist Julia wakes to find that the rotation of the the earth has started to slow, causing the days and nights to grow progressively longer. Soon the earth’s ecosystems are in chaos and societies are divided between those who embrace the new schedules and those who keep to the old 24-hour clock. Author Walker does a brilliant job of weaving Julia’s coming of age struggles into the story of a crumbling world, and the science behind the supposition is detailed, believable and wholly readable.

*Individual reading times may vary due to factors such as homework, the presence of children, or beautiful WNC weather. The LRC is not responsible for books not finished within the advertised 3 days. We do, however,  guarantee that our library staff finds each featured title compelling enough that it may cause readers to lose sleep or skip favorite TV shows in order to find out what happens next.
