ABOUT THE BOOK:
One morning, Julia and her parents wake up in their Californian home to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth is noticeably slowing. The enormity of this is almost beyond comprehension. And yet, even if the world is coming to an end, as some assert, day-to-day life must go on.
Julia, facing the loneliness and despair of an awkward adolescence, witnesses the impact of this phenomenon on the world, on the community, on her family and on herself...
