Vivian Apple at the End of the World (Paperback)
Now out in paperback:
"Being a teenager almost always involves dealing with lust, love, parental misunderstanding, questions of faith, and trying to find direction. Vivian Apple is about to attempt these typical teen challenges on the edge of a supposed apocalypse. A mega-church is scooping up members left and right to follow a charismatic leader towards an impending Rapture. When Viv’s parents turn into Believers, she finds herself on a cross country journey in search of answers and loved ones. Throughout this coming-of-age journey, the question around every corner remains the same: has the world come to an end?"--Reviewed by Emily— From Emily Recommends
Seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple never believed in the evangelical Church of America, unlike her recently devout parents. 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.
