Loved the book.
The drama follows three childhood friends who witness the stars in the sky as they mysteriously vanish. NASA probes reveal a black energy barrier has surrounded the Earth and time is traveling a billion times faster outside of the barrier. Civilization learns that it has five years left before the sun expands and consumes the planet. As the children grow, they go their separate ways trying to save the world from annihilation, but with time running out, will their friendship and mankind survive?
In the book it was more like 50 years.
