Synopsis:
An ALA Popular Paperback for Young Adults 2001

Something strange is happening in the parking lot at Time Zone High: the established cliques aren't in their usual gathering places. Instead, everyone has joined in one large, frantically interacting mass. Why? Maybe because the world may end tomorrow. For attractive, brilliant Legs Hanover this poses daunting questions: What are the romantic possibilities, given that she may have only twenty-four hours to live before a giant asteroid smashes into earth? Or is it just an Internet cyber-hoax?

Included only in Young Adult 10.


Review:
What would you do if you were told you only had 24 hours before an asteroid obliterated the planet? The teens at Time Zone High are struggling with that very question (along with figuring out who's sleeping with whom and whether or not to attend physics class). Is the asteroid real? Is it a government cover-up or an Internet hoax? And by the way, what are the Laws of Virginity? Allegra "Legs" Hanover--usually prepared for anything--is thrown into a tailspin by this potential catastrophe. Only minimally less disorienting is the discovery that her "platonic boyfriend" Derman may have slept with her sexy friend Angie. But as Legs has always thought, "high school is potty training for life," so she tries to make important decisions in the face of disaster--such as whether or not she should make a play for rebellious surfer dude Andros Bliss, the strangely attractive "Totally Inappropriate Guy."

Todd Strasser, author of How I Changed My Life and Girl Gives Birth to Own Prom Date (both also set at Time Zone High), once again proves his mastery at funny, fast-paced, fascinating writing. Teens will love this wild ride, and will find themselves laughing in the face of the end of the world. (Ages 12 to 16) --Brangien Davis
