Book Description:

If you knew the world was going to end tomorrow, what would you do? This is the question that haunts Amina as she watches new and horrible stories of discord and crisis flash across the news every day. But when she starts at prestigious Gardner Academy, Amina finds a group of like-minded peers to join forces with—fast friends who dedicate their year to learning survival skills from each other, before it’s too late. Still, as their prepper knowledge multiplies, so do their regular high school problems, from relationship drama to family issues to friend blow-ups. Juggling the two parts of their lives forces Amina to ask another vital question: Is it worth living in the hypothetical future if it’s at the expense of your actual present?

My Review: 

How to Pack for the End of the World is my first introduction to the work of Michelle Falkoff. The genre of it is teen and young adult fiction. It is a little different than what I am used to. Right from the beginning, I was not sure what to expect. The writing style was unique and it did take me a little while to get into it. It was about a third of the way through the book, I was hooked. I am glad that I continued to hang in there and kept reading or I would have missed a good read. I believe that many readers would be able to relate and feel connected to the main character, Amina. Her worried parents send her away because of her anxiety. This leads her to new friendships. It was fun getting to know them all. The four new friends were interesting addition to the story and helped make it flowed quite a bit faster and harder to put down. 

I am giving How to Pack for the End of the World three and a half stars. I would be interested in reading more by Michelle Falkoff in the future. I would recommend this one for readers who are in their teens and for those who enjoy young adult reads. I believe that it is worth a read. 

I received How to Pack for the End of the World from the publisher. This review is one honest opinion.
