Review: Lenny Hermann is obsessed with ways the world could end: aliens, climate change, asteroids—probably to take her mind off her father dying from cancer. Lenny feels lost. Her best friend is moving across the country at the end of the year, her sister is away at college, and her mom's judgeship occupies all her time. Lenny's last hope for a solid connection seems to be her crush, Dr. Ganesh—the man she hopes can save her father. But a misguided text, and late-night vandalism seem to have Lenny spiraling out of control. Abby Sher creates well-developed, likeable characters. Teens dealing with a terminally ill family member will relate to Lenny's confusion, guilt, and ultimately hopefulness.
