If you like Life as we knew it, by Susan Beth Pfeffer.

Thanks for visiting our website and for your Book Match request. I also enjoy stories featuring science fiction plotlines like Life As We Knew It. Also by Susan Pfeffer are the companion novels The Dead and the Gone and This World We Live In. Here are a few more titles you might enjoy:
