Book Review: We All Looked Up, by Tommy Wallach

We All Looked Up
By: Tommy Wallach
ISBN-10: 1481418777
Add on Goodreads

An asteroid nicknamed Ardor is plummeting toward Earth with a 66.6% chance of wiping out the entire planet, and four teenagers are left to plan out how they will spend possibly their last few weeks alive together.

It contains:

• Profanity (F-word, sh*t, *ss, b*tch, slut, screw, p*ssed, b*lls, suck, d*ck, p*ssy, boobs, and c*ck)
• Kissing, making out, discussions about wanting to lose virginity, two vague sex scenes, lewd dancing, one character has had sex many times before, references to an erectile dysfunction, masturbation, and syphilis
• Violence (reference to past attempted suicide, contemplating suicide, fighting, descriptions of blood, descriptions of injuries from a beating, shooting, murder, tear gas, tasering people, and arson)
• Attempted rape
• Lots of underaged drinking
• Smoking cigarettes
• Many references to drugs
• Tattoos
• One character’s parent has cancer

We All Looked Up takes a closeup, realistic look at teenagers and the possibility of a coming apocalypse. I would recommend younger teens skip this book, for there is a lot of inappropriate material all involving teenagers, though older readers should appreciate the angst and grittiness of the novel, and the deep, philosophy-filled writing.
