We All Looked Up is a pre-apocalyptic novel told in the perspectives of four different teens. In the face of Ardor, the asteroid that has a 66.6% chance of hitting earth, these four unlikely friends come together and bond over their impending doom. Eliza, Peter, Andy and Anita, otherwise known as the slut, the jock, the slacker and the over-achiever, overcome social constructs in a way they didn't think possible in this stunning first novel by Tommy Wallach.

Opinion: 

The fact that this is his first novel still stuns me. The plot was driven, the dialogue flowed wonderfully, and all of the characters were beautifully portrayed. Their struggles and fears were palpable things that readers could relate to. Despite it being an apocalypse novel, the characters connected in a way that was completely believable. All of the characters struggled with something, be it parents who don't care or parents who care too much. The end of this novel was complex in an unexpected turn of events that leaves readers questioning moral standards and outlooks on life. This book is perfect for any reader, whether it be a more advanced reader who is looking to explore a new genre of literature, or a reluctant reader who is looking for a book where it is easy to maintain interest in the plot.
