Publisher's Summary

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.

Wasn’t worth the credit

Performance and production are good, but the actual writing as a whole (ie. character development, reasonable responses/actions, character interactions, the crisis and resolution) sucked. The female characters feel really cringe and unauthentic. They read as an immature cis-male writing female perspectives with zero insight, thus relying on stereotypes and really dumb assumptions.

Great story, fun characters!!

Would you consider the audio edition of We All Looked Up to be better than the print version?

I LOVE this book, in all forms. I read the hardcover in a couple days and felt like I wanted to experience the characters again-- so I had to have the audio version!!

Wonderful book!!

This book definitely reminds me of a young adult reimagining of Stephen King's The Stand. The characters are vibrant, and the prose is expertly written.

Ending

The ending is frustrating but I did really like the story as a whole. Relatable characters and a good use of modern language... not in a cringey way.

Good Read

This book was hard to get into at first. I started it about three times before pushing myself to stick with it. after the first few chapters, I actually got really into it and finished within two days. I got the characters mixed up a couple of times, but as long as you pay attention you can connect the dots.

Awful

I kept going, waiting for something meaningful to happen, be it plot or character related. After I was 2/3 of the way through, I was just hoping the meteor would hurry up and wipe these navel gazing narcissists out. If you are going to be this unrealistic, at least use that freedom to make it interesting.

AMAZING

This entire book was playing with my emotions like tug-a-war. I couldn't put it down. I was crying so much on the road trip while reading this my aunt got me Starbucks to try and make me happy.

Who Cares???

Which of the characters am I supposed to root for? The selfish drug addict who loots stores and whines about being a virgin? The girl who sleeps with anything that moves because people made fun of her (even though she claims to love the jock) and who basically abandons her dying father (who she claims to love) so she can hang with the other teens for the weeks before the world MIGHT end? The jock who drinks and does drugs and cheats on the girlfriend he doesn't love? The "smart" girl who loves the drug addict (for some unfathomable reason) and commits arson just for the thrill of it? I could care less about the four main characters and their goal of hosting a big party (for some weird reason). I SO wanted to like this story, but I couldn't wait for it to end. A waste of a credit.

Very disappointing

This is mostly a book about teenagers trying to have sex with eachother, and I guess a meteor is in the background too. It’s extremely tropey with each of the “high school cliques” ( think jock, melancholy artist, stoner, and honor roll student) represented by extremely one-dimensional characters. The use of being high school students is purely an uncreative plot device to conveniently interconnect the main characters story lines. The kids are somehow written as hollow teenager tropes, but also as though they are young adults with adult problems and resources( somehow they basically live on their own, and go to clubs and drink, have one night stands, connections to drug lords, etc). The lack of believability of these characters makes them read like they were written by a 14year old and what they imagine being an adult ( you know, like 21) to be like. The book stretches to create moments of depth, but misses every on every attempt with poor metaphors and lack of sincere growth in any character.
