The Age of Miracles - Karen Thompson Walker

The Age of Miracles - Karen Thompson Walker (2012)

On what seems like a normal Saturday, Julia and her parents wake to find that the earth has changed, it is slowing down and the day is longer by several minutes.  This gradual slowing down continues each day, affecting everybody and every living thing.

I was drawn in by this clever little novel, and raced to bed and finished it on the second night of reading and I thought about it all day.  The only thing that annoyed me was Julias age of eleven, I thought her voice and experiences seemed of a teenager,  slightly older than her in the story.

Certainly thought provoking, and memorable read  5/5
