Will the Class of 2049 be the last class ever?

Lucy and her boyfriend have been planning an epic post-graduation trip for months, despite the unstable world they live in. But when everyone's phones start to ring during prom, Lucy knows something terrible has happened - something new. Decades of climate change have taken their toll, religious extremism is spreading, refugees have nowhere left to turn, and terrorism is common. But this is worse. Far worse.

An unforgettable story about teens finding their way in a world the adults have destroyed, Unnatural Disasters is an ultimately hopeful tale of survival, identity, family, and love.

Review quote

"A brilliantly written tale of a town in crisis."--Kirkus

"Focus on everyday reactions to extraordinary events leads to an intimate story about grief, trauma, and coping, and character reactions by Hirsch (Black River Falls) feel authentic."--Publishers Weekly

"A solid exploration of at least one possible future for our world."--Booklist

"Young adult readers will be kept in suspense throughout as questions, mysteries, and revelations are slowly divulged even up to the last page."--School Library Journal

"Lucy's charisma and the earnest attempt at addressing some very relatable uneasiness make this a hard-to-put-down read, especially as an alternative to the news."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
