The Age of Miracles (5) — Thompson Walker, Karen
On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray.

As Julia adjust to the new normal, the slowing inexorably continues. REQUEST IT!
