Booklist Review: "It's been nearly a year since Derrick Dee Waters lost his mom, a Major in the Air Force deployed in Iraq. Since then, he's been convinced that the apocalypse is scheduled to happen this September 21, which is 19 days away. He's consumed by a doomsday blog and outfitting a shed to keep him safe when the fated day rolls around. Dee's family and friends have learned to deal with his fixation, but when his next-door neighbor, Misty, reappears after a long-term bout with a rare kidney disease, confusion settles in like a low-grade fever. Her near-death experience makes her want to try doing absolutely everything, which makes her seem like a kook. However, with Misty's outgoing attitude, the two help each other regain their lives, even in the face of the unexpected. Landis, a middle school teacher, offers flawless eighth-grade voices and awkwardness. He understands how kids relate to each other and their parents, and most of all, he gets that kids have deep emotions even if they don't want to admit to them. This book will be a hit with fans of Jordan Sonnenblick.--Jeanne Fredriksen Copyright 2019 Booklist"
