"When seventh-grader Eleanor reads an article online claiming that an asteroid will hit Earth in April, she starts an underground school club to prepare kids for the end of the world as we know it"-- Provided by publisher.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
When Eleanor stumbles upon a website predicting that next year an asteroid will bring about "TEOTWAWKI" (the end of the world as we know it), she buys in. After all, the site's author is an ex-Harvard astrophysicist, and Eleanor's grandfather is a survivalist who jumps at the chance to prepare for an apocalypse. With the help of her best friend, Mackâa sensitively depicted blind boyâEleanor spreads the word, but as the day draws near, she is faced with the growing possibility of Mack transferring to a specialized school. She clings to her belief in the pending disaster, even as others try reasoning with her. Whether or not the asteroid strikes, her world will never be the same, and the suspense will keep readers flipping pages. McAnulty (The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, 2018) returns with another STEM-themed tale, balancing scientific ideas with middle-school drama. It's a well-paced, engrossing plot with endearing characters, though sympathy for Eleanor may ultimately hinge, for better or worse, on her competence in regard to the coming end. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
