Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.

They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can’t wait to escape Seattle—and her reputation—and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn’t understand all the fuss about college and career—the future can wait.

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they’re going to spend what remains of the present.

    What would you do if there was a asteroid coming close to Earth and the chances of dying was more than your chances of living ? What would you do if 2 months might just be all you have left? The book We All Looked Up By:Tommy Wallach is a very powerful and descriptive story that I strongly recommend people to read. This book takes place in school, the characters houses, and other areas around their town. This book is written in more than one character's perspective. There is more than one protagonists because of all of the perspectives but one Protagonist is Peter, Peter is a star basketball player who has everything going right for him until he starts liking the same person as Andy, Andy is the antagonist in this case but do to all the perspectives there is more than one antagonist. One conflict is the asteroid coming to Earth this group of teenagers from different crowds only have a 40% chance of living beyond 2 months. Does the thing that could kill them bring them all together? Another conflict is between anita who is a hard worker and her dad who expects nothing but perfect from her.This book was the best book I have ever read the characters were all very well described it made me feel as if I was in there shoes.This book was also a "New York Times Best Seller". I thought this book was very well written and I strongly recommend it.
