The Age of Miracles: a very short review

A traveling friend, passing through, gave us her copy of Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles: A Novel when she left.

The book is narrated by Julia, an 11 year old girl in sixth grade.

That's a rough time for a child: social issues; puberty and adolescence; the realization that you're not a child anymore.

When you are 11 years old, and in sixth grade, it seems like everything is changing; it seems like the world as you know it is ending.

But what if, in fact, everything is changing?

And the world as you know it is ending?

I enjoyed Walker's book and zipped right through it, and am now giving it to someone else to enjoy.
