More questions than answers

Vivian Apple at the end of the world

Title: Vivian Apple at the end of the world
By: Katie Coyle

The Church of America has been warning of the rapture for a long time, all the while taking over the country. Vivian Apple doesn’t believe in the church, even though her parents are believers. On the morning after the rapture was supposed to take place, Vivian comes home to find her parents gone and two holes in the roof. Vivian is confused: she doesn’t believe that the rapture is real, but then why are her parents gone? Not long afterward, Vivian’s grandparents arrive suddenly and take her with them to New York. But in New York, Vivian finds more questions than answers. She soon decides that she must go back home. After returning and uncovering clues as to where her parents might be, she and her best friend Harp, who was also left behind, decide that they need help. They find Peter, a boy who is willing to help but who may not be telling them all he knows about the church. The three of them set off on a road trip to find the truth. Along the way, Vivian and her friends get support from unexpected places—and possibly learn more of the truth than they ever bargained for.

Vivian Apple at the End of the World tells the story of a girl who begins to question everything she believed in and learns why people make decisions that can change their lives forever.
