The End by Mats Strandberg

This is an interesting book.  There's a meteorite that will collide with the world and take earth out of existence.  They have a few months to prepare for it but how do prepare for the end of life when you feel fine?

Arctis Books and Net Galley let me read this boook fir review (thank you).  It will be published on October 6th.

This written from the perspective of teenager responses.  There are families that commit suicide.  Some of the teens turn to drugs  Relationships bud, some of them die.  People lose their tempers.  It's a great feeling of unrest.

Simon is in love with Tilda.  She dumps him when the news on this broke.  Then she's found dead and people think he's killed her.  He didn't but he begins searching for the killer.  It's better than waiting around to die. He finally finds out what happened to her with just a couple of days left. 

This author does a good job showing all the various emotions, how quickly they can change from joy to sorrow and back again.  Their basic character really shows in crisis moments.
