But when Vivian returns home the night after the supposed "Rapture," all that's left of her parents are two holes in the roof. Suddenly, she doesn't know who or what to believe. With her best friend Harp and a mysterious ally, Peter, Vivian embarks on a desperate cross-country roadtrip through a paranoid and panic-stricken America to find answers. Because at the end of the world, Vivan Apple isn't looking for a savior. She's looking for the truth.

"Narrator Julia Whelan narrates this chilling account of a teen member of the evangelical Church of America at a time when widespread disasters have ravaged the country. Whelan depicts 16-year-old Vivian Apple's dread as she counts down the minutes to Rapture day. With sharp wit and momentary abandon, Vivian escapes her good-girl image to party with her wild, impetuous BFF, Harp. Everything changes when Vivian discovers two human-sized holes in her parents' bedroom, which indicate that her Believer parents have ascended. Whelan emphasizes the twists in Vivian's daring journey to discover the truths behind the sexist, rigid cult of the church. The fast-paced story includes intelligent irreverent humor. S.W.
