A "laughter through tears" YA novel about a teenage girl struggling to deal with her father's terminal cancer―in all the wrong ways

All the Ways the World Can End by Abby Sher is at times heart wrenching while at others hilarious.

Lenny (short for Eleanor) feels like the world is about to end. Her best friend is moving to San Francisco and her dad is dying. To cope with her stress Lenny is making a list of all the ways the world can end―designer pathogens, blood moon prophecies, alien invasion―and stockpiling supplies in a bunker in the backyard.

Then she starts to develop feelings for her dad's very nice young doctor―and she thinks he may have feelings for her too. Spoiler alert: he doesn't. But a more age-appropriate love interest might. In a time of complete uncertainty, one thing's for sure: Lenny's about to see how everything is ending and beginning. All at the same time.

Praise for All the Ways the World Can End:

“Lenny’s grief feels palpable and honest.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Expressing the same type of magical thinking explored in Sher’s memoir, Amen, Amen, Amen, the novel delineates destructive and healthy responses to loss, and shows that beauty and continuity can exist amid tragedy.” ―Publishers Weekly
