What do you do with your last day on earth?

Just over twenty-four hours are left until an asteroid strikes North America, and for Emerson and everyone else who didn't leave, the world will end. But Emerson's world already ended when she ran away from home. Since then, she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and on her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat.

The city's quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them he has been granting people's wishes -- and gives them his wallet full of money.

Suddenly, this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in one last day -- maybe even their own.

3 Reasons You Should Read

All We Have Is Now by Lisa Schroeder


  • Reason number one is all about our main characters. Emerson and Vince are lovely. We think there should be A LOT more Vince-like characters in the literary world because, swoon!
  • There is so much to love in this book, but one of our favorite things is the running theme of paying-it-forward. We don’t want to spoil anything, but when Vince and Emerson spend their day making others happy it gave us hope for mankind.
  • We’re pretty sure this quote from Julie Murphy says it all, “ALL WE HAVE IS NOW is one of those books my teenage self needed — a thoughtfully crafted reminder that every moment is a gift and that we should be kind, especially to ourselves.”
