The Age of Miracles is speculative fiction at it’s finest (think Margaret Atwood). It isn’t in-your-face science fiction, but simply a quiet coming-of-age story about eleven-year-old Julia. The author beautifully captures the heartbreak of the middle grades, while also exploring the societal changes that come with the earth’s rotation suddenly slowing down. A great debut and a wonderful novel for readers of all ages.
