A chilling vision of a contemporary USA where the sinister Church of America is destroying lives. Our cynical protagonist, seventeen-­year-­old Vivian Apple, is awaiting the fated ‘Rapture’ -­ or rather the lack of it. Her evangelical parents have been in the Church’s thrall for too long, and she’s looking forward to getting them back. Except that when Vivian arrives home the day after the supposed ‘Rapture’, her parents are gone. All that is left are two holes in the ceiling…

Viv is determined to carry on as normal, but when she starts to suspect that her parents might still be alive, she realises she must uncover the truth. Joined by Peter, a boy claiming to know the real whereabouts of the Church, and Edie, a heavily pregnant Believer who has been ‘left behind’, they embark on a road trip across America. Encountering freak weather, roving ‘Believer’ gangs and a strange teenage group calling themselves the ‘New Orphans’, Viv soon begins to realise that the Rapture was just the beginning.

Ah this book just sounds so interesting! A “rapture”, a road trip, maybe a conspiracy theory! Also, the cover is gorgeous. Something about the contrast of the image that’s so relax feeling versus the title that’s about destructions/end of the world  I just really enjoy.

What are you guys waiting for? Link us up below!

  1. Nice pick, I’ve seen this mentioned on a few blogs now and it’s intrigued me enough to add it to my wishlist!

    My WoW!

    1. Thanks! I’ve been seeing it around too which is why I added to my waiting list 😉

  2. Ooh! This sounds very interesting. I like the sound of the concept with the whole Church of America thing going on. My only worry is that it will get too religious at some point.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. That’s my fear too! But I’m hoping it’ll be more fictional conspiracy theory/cult-ish rather than non-fictional religion based ideas.
      Thanks for stopping by (:

  7. My grandmother’s name was Vivian and I wanted to call my first born Vivian but the hubs argued it was too old sounding..now I wish I vetoed his vote because I love the name. This sounds really good and was a new find for me..always appreciated!
