Last night a super-moon shone in the night sky, so brilliant you could read a book by it. A super-moon looks huge because it is closer to earth than ever. It is a perigee moon.
Lockdown happens on a hot August day, much like the summer we are having now in the Pacific Northwest. At the start of the novel there is a rare great earthquake that alters life forever for Rowan Morgan.
The theme of the novel is chaos: how do people behave when their lives are changed dramatically and forever?
Some people think a full moon influences our behaviour. This is called the lunar effect. If the earthquake had happened during a super-moon, would the characters have acted differently?
Do any characters in Lockdown show that they can adapt for the new order of things? Who adapts for personal gain and who adapts to help others?
