This book review essay explores the relevance of Karen Thompson Walker's debut YA novel, The Age of Miracles, centered around an 11-year-old girl living through a global phenomenon that results in the deconstruction of her normal life. The parallels between the novel and our own world, while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, are remarkable. Reading The Age of Miracles in a time like this can offer people, especially young adults, a sense of familiarity and solidarity.
