What would you do if you only had eight weeks to live? What would we all do? We All Looked Up follows the lives of four high school seniors as they come to terms with the harsh reality that the world is ending. As the last weeks on Earth unfold, so do the stories of these peculiar young adults. They are all trying to cope with the idea that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. The colleges they worked so hard to get into will no longer be there in the fall, the cars they saved up for will no longer exist. As their lives begin to intertwine, society begins to unravel as protests erupt throughout cities. Surprisingly heartwarming and full of interesting and charismatic characters, We All Looked Up is an apocalyptic young adult novel that you cannot miss! -- Quinn A.

— From September 2015


Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.

They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried "they" might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can't wait to escape Seattle--and her reputation--and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn't understand all the fuss about college and career--the future can wait.

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors--along with the rest of the planet--wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they're going to spend what remains of the present.
