The United States is now divided into Believers and Non-Believers, thanks to the magnetic Pastor Frick, founder of the powerful Church of America. Seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple spends the night before the predicted Rapture with her best friend, Harpreet Janda, at a mock-countdown party in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. But when she returns home the next morning, her parents are gone and there are two holes in their bedroom ceiling. Is it some sort of trick? Or . . . real? Viv and her friends decide to find out, and their dangerous road trip across a paranoid and panic-stricken America makes for a darkly entertaining, grip-the-steering-wheel ride.
