The Age of Miracles, former editor Walker's first novel, marries the sci-fi genre to a bildungsroman in a story of a young girl coping with changes in the world around her, both big and small. The book's major happening, "the slowing," brings about scary environmental and social changes, even as protagonist Julia is dealing with crushes, friendships and more.
