Summer days... and nights

It's summer... so it's time for another Susan Beth Pfeffer, This World We Live In. This one is a sequel to the first two books, Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone. Miranda is 17 now, and her world seems to be thawing from the winter of starvation that her family has endured in a small Pennsylvania town. Although the sun hasn't been able to break through the ash-filled clouds, some food is becoming available, and the electricity comes on sometimes. Matthew and John are itching to travel and have adventures, but their mother seems weaker from her self-enforced starvation. Warm days, more food, and returning strength means they'll have more contact with others who have survived the earthly results of a change in the moon's orbit, including Alex and Julie Morales.
