Review: We All Looked Up

We All Looked Up
We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An asteroid is headed for Earth, about two months out. The government says to stay calm. Earth is safe, until suddenly, it isn’t. The threat level gets upgrade to a potential for the asteroid to hit the Earth, and if it does, scientists predict humanity will say goodbye to at least 2/3 of the world’s population. Nobody is sure about point of impact or who the “lucky” 1/3 might be.

This is a pre-apocalypse story that follows several teenage POVs and explores different ideas about the potential meaning, value, and purpose of life. The characters are unique and opposites in terms of lifestyles and viewpoints which made for an interesting story.

How would you spend your time, knowing your time might be running out? This story explores that from multiple teenage perspectives. It’s messy, and you won’t want to look away.
