Three different teenagers end up in the same town, on the day that a earthquake hits. This earthquake just happens to be the largest one ever recorded in American history. The book goes on to tell the story of each of the three teenagers during the earthquake. They all have their own difficult problems to go through as they try to make it away from the earthquake alive. The book shows their entire struggle for survival and their willpower. They all realize the same thing in the end...that you have to make each day matter.
I liked this book very much, I liked how it showed three different teenagers' stories. It didn't just show one. You got to see how each of the different teenagers deals with the earthquake. I enjoyed it quite a bit, it was one of the better books that I have read in a long time.
