Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.
They always say that high school is the best time of your life.
Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried "they" might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can't wait to escape Seattle - and her reputation - and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn't understand all the fuss about college and career - the future can wait.
Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors - along with the rest of the planet - wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they're going to spend what remains of the present.

This entire book was playing with my emotions like tug-a-war. I couldn't put it down. I was crying so much on the road trip while reading this my aunt got me Starbucks to try and make me happy.
I LOVE this book, in all forms. I read the hardcover in a couple days and felt like I wanted to experience the characters again-- so I had to have the audio version!!
The story is fresh and the characters rich. The relationships are everything you could ask for. Just listen to We All Looked Up... You'll thank me later.
I really liked the book, but (minor spoiler) when a character dies in the end, it's kind of brushed aside like it doesn't matter. Good story and characters though
