'This generation's The Stand. . . at once troubling, uplifting, scary and heart-wrenching' Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle Before, we let ourselves be defined by labels - the athlete, the outcast, the slacker, the overachiever. But then we all looked up and everything changed. They said the asteroid would be here in two months. That gave us two months to leave our labels behind. Two months to become something bigger than what we'd been, something that would last even after the end. Two months to really live.
