    A good book which I will not be reading again

    I'll preface this by saying that YA is not my preferred genre. I'm rating the book as a YA book, not as a book I personally enjoyed at four-star level. The premise was interesting and exciting, and admittedly I haven't done my homework on meteor impact scenarios but the description felt realistic to me. The protagonist was relatable and her struggles, especially the situation with her mother, was really well written. By which I mean it was frustrating to read and I wanted to shake the mother basically every time she appeared, but it was very realistic. I was genuinely happy for the protagonist when she managed to stand up for herself in the end. My main complaint with the book, and the reason the impression I was left with isn't as positive as it might have been, is that towards the end there's a flashback scene to the cat shelter where the protagonist used to work before the end of the world, of the cats being put down, and I really didn't need to read that.

    What a lovely book

    I feel like 'lovely' could be an odd word to describe apocalyptic scifi, but it definitely fits. This is moving, very well written, deeply likeable and surprisingly (plausibly) optimistic.
