Holiday Break Reading Challenge Activity #4

Today's challenge is taken from Stella Matutina's blog. Here is what you need to do:

1 - List the title and author of the book you are currently reading.

2 - Use any photo hosting site (Google Images, Flickr, Photobucket, FlickrCC, etc.) to find photos related to your book. "The image(s) you post need to have something to do with the book you're currently reading. You can post a painting or photograph that makes you think of the story or the characters, choose a few pictures that highlight some of the book's most important elements, or do a little of both. The only thing you can't do is just post the cover art and leave it at that, though you're welcome to include a cover image alongside your other selections." (Stella Matutina)

3 - Put a short description with each picture explaining what it means to the book.


This is the book that I am reading:


This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer


Finally we are able to find out what happens to Miranda and her family and Alex and Julie.


 Miranda and her family are still trying to survive even though winter does seem to be subsiding. Matt and Jon decide to go catch fish(shad) about 15 miles away. They are gone for about a week.

While the boys are away Miranda continues to break into homes in the area searching for anything that her and her family can use. She is looking for toilet paper, paper towels, food, toiletry items like shampoo, toothpaste, mouthwash etc.


 On their return from fishing the boys bring a girl with them. Matt says that he and Syl have "spoken words" and are now married. Mom is not happy, another mouth to feed.

One day Dad shows up with his wife and new baby and 3 other people. Charlie that they met at a shelter and Alex and Julie(from The Dead and the Gone). Everyone pitches in to cut wood, find food etc. Extra food is given to Dad's wife so she has enough energy and nutrients for the baby. Ten people living in one home is too much though. Dad makes plans to move his group to another house. Alex makes plans for he and Julie to move on. He is planning on leaving her at a nunnery and himself finding a monestary to become a priest. What will happen from here? I have no idea but I will keep reading!
